Build Diary 03-January-05

On the 2nd January I went flying so no building! Today I got into the workshop at 11:00 this morning and had a good full day - finished at 5pm.

A good days work so I moved onto the elevator ribs. John Mitchie's back rivet instructions proved worth while, and I did the ribs quite quickly. Without too many problems. One rivet head was above the skin (pictured with 'out' arrowed below). I had about 3 rivets that tipped over that I will remove and redo. The primer (grey)on the skin's shows up well in the pictures below.

The gun slipped off the rivet head while I was concentrating on the bucking bar. So I had to remove the rivet and start again....
