Brief Description:  Reassembling the RW

It's been 6 weeks since my last entry. The reason was vacation and work !

Today I started by reassembling all the parts on the wing (LE, fuel tank, bottom skin) and re-aligning the wing on the jig. Then I installed the outboard aileron braket,

One tough part was to rivet the top rivet on the rear spar of the outboard rib. Those rivets are the 426 style and there was not enough space for impacting the flat head. So i used the back riveting technic wich work quite well. To hold the bucking bar against the ribet, I used a 4 X 4 on which I placed the flat bucking bar and held it in place using my hydrolic jack. Then I rivetted the other side by using the back rivetter tool. Result was perfect.
