Short Description:  Installed the butt ribs

Started the day by going thru the manual and double checking the fuselage chapter in the assembly manual. Glad I did as I discovered an issue with the bolts that attach the mixer assembly to the fuselage structure. The rotating motion is supposed to be via the bushings but the bolts were turning relative to the mixer; the safety wire is supposed to keep that from happening. (See the manual: Fuselage Assembly, Section 8, Flight Controls, Rev D, page 26, paragraph 70.) So, I reinstalled the safety wire and ran it through the bolt twice to take up the slack between the bolt and the castellated nut.

Installed the butt ribs. The manual calls for stainless steel rivets when connecting the butt rib to the mounting tabs but I'm not fond of SS rivets in wood without tension washers and Cherry Max rivets are better in that application to boot! But, I ran 5 short of the correct length rivets so an Aircraft Spruce order is next.
