Tonight, I cut out the covers for both station 2.5 ribs and drew out all the gussets on plywood. Since the plywood covers are on opposite sides for each wing I think I have a good plan for clamping those covers without stapling them and still only gluing twice. For the first gluing, I'll just do the structure for the first rib and glue the plywood cover on top with weight. I'll let that dry and then for the second gluing, I'll do the gussets with staples on the other side and the second 2.5 rib structure with the gussets with staples on top, followed immediately taking the second one out and using weight to clamp the bottom side plywood cover on. Sounds confusing, I know, but it should work.
