Build Diary 28-May-05

This has been my least favorite task so far - the fitting of the final bulkhead. The plans suggest fitting the two final bulkheads to the lower skin with the tail wheel spring mount.

As this is a quickbuild fuse most of the work is complete appart from fitting the tail spring. The task of aligning the tail wheel spring and fitting the final bulkhead is difficult. I called another QB builder, the tail wheel spring mount was already fitted on his fuse (RV6). I could not fit the lowest two inner rivets. I decided two blind rivets would be better than badly set solids - as the access is so restricted.

These two holes are hidden behind the tail wheel spring mount.
Finally all the rivets fitted.
