Brief Description: Riveting the Horizontal Stabilizer
Today I completed riveting the skins to all of the skeleton of the horizontal stabilizer except for the rear spar. I also blind riveted the HS-702 to the HS-707 and HS-708. The blind riveting went better today than the other day. So did all of the other riveting. I didn’t have to drill out any rivets today. There was one rivet that turned out a little ugly but it was within spec in all dimensions so I decided to leave it. I was afraid I would do more damage removing it than leaving it in.
After I finished riveting the HS-702 and HS-708 to the HS-801PP I clecoed the rear spar assembly on to the HS-801PP. This completes the horizontal stabilizer assembly once it is riveted! I’m excited to finish this first sub assembly.
