Brief Description:  Tail cone-finished driving rivets

Used my tungsten bar to finish riveting most of the fuse skin to upper longerons between the F810 and F811 bulkheads. There is one hole one each side just aft of the F811 bulkhead that has a tab from the bulkhead that gets riveted with the skin and longeron. As I have found previously, many of these little tabs just don’ t want to lay flat. The best method I’ve found to remedy this is to apply some JB Weld between the tab and longeron and cleco together. After the JB Weld dries, the tab is stuck down and riveting is not a problem. Need to pick up some more JB Weld tomorrow and finish these last 2 rivets. Regarding the tungsten bar, I wrapped it with that stretchy stuff they use at the Doctor’s office when they take a blood sample. The material makes the bar easy to hang on to, plus it makes for a cushioned grip.
