Yes.
And the first a/c we did ALL downstop nuts where NOT tightened or not on torque. No missing parts however, yet.
The whole fleet must be finished in a few days now.

we found no missing hardware however several loose nuts all took 1/4 to 3/4 of a turn to come up to torque. Additionally on otbd track No 4 slat took approx 3 full turns to come up to torque. we took all nuts to 80 in lbs.
So far life is good!!!

Of the 5 Ive done we have found pretty much every bolt loose and requiring re-torquing. We have found one completely un-attached, the bolt had migrated and caused damage on some structure just outside the slat can. Fortunately it was easily remedied as their was no damage to the slat cam. The nut had come off, the bolt had migrated, caught on the structure and sheared off.
