Brief Description:  Tank Assy - Rivet Ribs Tips 2

I'm using the long bucking bar for most of the rivets. I'm using the square one with a thin edge for those rivets adjacent to the stiffeners. I watch the rivet gun on the first couple of rivets on the curved leading edge, because the gun will move. But on the flat parts of the tank I set the gun and watch the bucking bar. I can shape nice shop heads.
