Same as the ribs, applyig them before the full chord ribs. I glue them with
varnish, a bit lenghtier than necessary and after that I cut them to exact
lenght using a penciled line as a guide, scraping or tearing out the
remaining strip. Use a new blade to trim the riblets and avoid marring the
surrounding wing surface.

Sometimes just lightly scribing paralell lines (gluing togheter two #11
blades) makes the grade.
