Brief Description:  Bulkhead Installation-3

Riveted the F807 bulkhead into the fuse. Used the pneumatic squeezer for all rivets except for one on each side that sits close to the side skin and the longeron. Borrowed a hand squeezer for friend Richard (building RV-7A) to set these two rivets. Riveted the F869 gussets to the F807 bulkhead and then to the longeron. Riveted my threaded tie down attachments to the gussets. Edge finished the F825 aft top skin and scuffed all rivet lines-inside & out. Dimpled the skin using the squeezer where I could and the DRDT2 dimpler where the squeezer wouldn’t reach. Have not yet dimpled the sides of skin--need to roll the edges of the sides before using the squeezer to dimple them.
