Brief Description:  Rivets Spar Caps and Doubler to Spar

Rivets Spar Caps and Doubler to Spar

The final step in attaching the doubler was to set the 3/16" rivets for the spar caps. As before, I used Gary Weyermann's tool to set the rivets. However, I placed pieces of 2x6 on other side of the tool so that I could avoid any repetition of the accidental hit on the web that damaged the right spar cap during my initial riveting, see fig. 1.

1. I first set the rivets on the top spar cap. After setting all 4 rivets, I realized that I'd forgotten to put the rib angle, 6ZU1-4 in place. So, I had to drill off the head and pound that rivet out. I used Lauren's 4X rivet gun, and it ejected the rivet very easily. Then I clecoed the rib angle in place and set the remaining rivets.
2. The front and rear views of the doubler are shown in Figs. 2 and 3, respectively.
