Brief Description: Additional rivets to the splice & re-inforcing pla
When the Aeronautical Engineer was recently at my workshop he noticed something that gave him cause for mention. He advised that the splice plates and the hinge backing plates would be a lot stronger if there were rivets along the spar cap, and suggested that I install flush 1/8 solid rivets in these locations.
So, following the re-positioning of the rear spar, I proceeded to follow his advice.
I then started on the final positioning and fixing of the stringers.
