Elevator Rib Riveting

Good progress!  The elevators are going to come together any day now.  Just so happens that day will be after Oshkosh…

Things were going swimmingly with 4 of us working at once.  We set up a wonderful assembly line to back rivet the elevator rib halves.  So wonderful that we managed to neglect the fact that the top/bottoms are swapped left/right.

So, the day ended with the humiliating drilling of 64 rivets.  I think we’re pretty good at drilling out rivets, now.
