Brief Description:  Pilot side sliding seat and rivet

Over the last several days I was working on the pilot side sliding seat. I figured it would go faster after having done the passenger side, but it was much slower. For some reason the parts didn't want to fit as well as before, so I was making minor adjustments. Also, I discovered that when measuring the seat base for the bolt holes that I did not have the forward seat support inboard edge positioned where it needed to be and so the top was not centered for the bolt. Fortunately, I was able to re-drill the L angle holes on the channel side to get it aligned. One thing I learned when doing the passenger side earlier was that the pre-drilled holes in the seat pan do not match the plans by a few milimeters, so this time I used the pre-drilled pan hole locations to determine the spacing between the actuator hardware rather than the plans. That should help with the seat pan fit. So really, the only measurements from the plans that were relevant to locating the bolt holes were the front and rear distances from the channel edge. After disassembling again for debur and treatment I finished riveting the passenger side while the pilot side tube channel was off. Reassembled the pilot side seat area and riveted. I had been unsure about being able to get the hand riveter inside the the torque channel with both sides up, but it turned out there is enough play in the mechanism that I could squeeze the handle a bit before the rivet stem was grabbed, and that allowed it to fit. On the pilot side I pre-attached the L angles to the seat supports as opposed to the passenger side where I pre-attached them to the channel side. So this time I didn't have to do any contortions in the lightening holes. Now that both seat bases were in, I riveted the forward pan edges.

Finally, with all the seat components up to the bases riveted, and all rivets inside the tube channel done, I riveted the front torque tube bearing assembly in place and slid in the front of the torque tube, but did not affix the retaining hardware.
