Brief Description:  L/E: Rivetted to main spar

a friend of mine (Dawie) graciously agreed to come and assist with the shooting of the leading edge rib to spar web rivets. There is no way I could do this by myself. He was bucking and I shot the rivets from below - it took a fair amount of contorting and twisting but after about 2 hours of relaxed rivetting, we were done!

The first opportunity I got after that though, I squeezed all the skin to spar rivets with the pneumatic squeezer. Results are great and it's awesome to see things going together permanently again!
