Brief Description:  Riveting F-970 skins

Started to rivet F970 skins in earnest. Started with the rivets at F-904 as the plans suggest. Got both sides and several of the rivets in the forward F-970s (both sides) done before realizing I used -4.5 rivets thinking they were -5! About 40 rivets drilled out and reset before session was over. Ouch!

Finished most of the port side aft of F-904 except for the most aft double-row and rivets that were under the clecoed seat pans and baggage floors.

I bought 2x4's and began cutting them up to make a rolling cradle for the "flipped canoe" per some plans I drew up. Got 3 double locking casters from Woodcraft...the RV-9A has tricycle gear, but the fuse cradle will be a "tail dragger"!
