Whoa, I’ve got a few exciting days in a row building up. Well, not days, but posts.
Tonight, I knew if I kept focused, I could get from drilled aileron gap fairing to riveted aileron gap fairing.
I’ll break it down.
5 minutes of edge finishing (thank you scotchbrite wheel).
5 minutes of hole deburring.
5 minutes of dimpling (only the upper half of the aileron gap fairing).
5 minutes of cleaning inside
2.5 minutes to prime one side
5 minutes filling girlfriend’s tires
2.5 minutes priming the other side
5 minutes filling my tires
10 minutes shooting the AN470AD4 and AD5 rivets.
10 minutes to squeeze the AN426AD3-3.5 rivets.
Anyone keeping track of the minutes?
Oh yeah, 5 minutes to admire my (no drilling out!) riveting.
1.0 hour, 28 rivets shot, 27 rivets squeezed, for a grand total of 55 rivets.
