Riveting Flaps   August 26th, 2009

I started riveting the flaps by attaching the ribs to the bottom skin. Some of these I could do with a squeezer, and some with the rivet gun.

Then I put on the top skin and used the fuel tank cradle to somewhat hold things in place. There is just enough room for a small bucking bar in there, but things turned out pretty good.
The last things to do were to assemble the inboard rib. This rib holds a bracket where the flap actuator is connected. Finally, I riveted the spar to ‘close the flap’
