I finally got it to bend using a combination of soaking overnight and then boiling the crap out of it for over an hour.
Even that didn't work once. I thought about ditching this method and using the current (?) Sequoia method of making the leading edge part of the rib, forward of the front wing spar out of solid spruce with a lightening hole. This is mentioned in a post in the skunkworks section of the Sequoia website. We'll see how it goes with the #1 and #2 ribs.
