Finished up the skin rivets on the rudder this morning (up at 5:30am). I spent the bulk of the time trying to figure out how to get to the rivets in the sharp trailing edge area at the top and bottom ribs. Vans allows for blind rivets in this area and although I was able to drive rivets into these 6 holes, the quality of the rivet vs. the time it took, I think next time I'll put the blind rivets in. For a small piece the rudder isn't a fast build.
Riveting the rudder skins
One of many attempts to buck one of the tight rivets, I hit this piece of steel w/gun (backriveting)
