The four rivets you said you forgot, those are supposed to be left empty, the holes will be drilled to 3/16″ to attach the empennage to the fuselage
Correct me if I’m wrong
The four rivets that I had forgotten are actually the four on the very edges of the picture. The picture shows them after I remembered and set them.
But, you are correct. There are four holes that are matchdrilled during final assembly. Those will go in the spaces between the sets of rivets on either side of center.
yeap, i got em now, I was looking at the blueprints for 710/714 drilling pattern when I was working with the rear spar, oops!
