Phil Cobbin dropped by to help with the riveting for the right side. We began at the front and worked our way back, going from the bottom to where I could reach the rivet to buck myself. The area aft of the spar where the ribs are close together were a special joy (sarcasm) and Phil ended up milling s slot to make a special bucking bar that would fit over the nuts already installed on the spar.
eventually Phil had to go and I tackled all the remaining rivets. I was able to reach more in the aft section than I thought I would but still ended up with 21 left to do before I can flip the fuselage over and begin joining the tail cone. As I was finishing up, Iron Horse Coatings called to let me know my steps were ready. The red powdercoat looks great!
