After the last couple work sessions priming various parts, I was getting all hot and bothered to rivet something. I thought I would tackle the spar reinforcements. I also forgot to charge the camera battery, so I’m using the new phone. Hopefully they turn out okay.
I got out a few rivets. AN470AD4-5 and -6.
I clecoed the reinforcement plates and nutplates onto the spar, and riveted the four corners and one ear of the nutplate, then took out the clecos and riveted the rest.
After doing both plates, I put the spar back on the table.
And just to show you AGAIN how much I love my new tungsten bucking bar, here are the perfect shop heads.
Next up is to continue riveting on the skeleton, so I pulled E-705 out of the “recently match-drilled” pile and got it deburred, dimpled, edge-finished, and prepped for priming.
16 rivets set in 30 minutes of building after 30 minutes of shop cleanup (cleaned out the shopvac, etc).
