Brief Description:  Rivet F-821-1 top forward skin-7

Almost done with the F-821 top forward skin—almost, because there is one hole left to fill. It sits under the flange bolted to the roll bar—so, there is a bolt head directly above the rivet hole. We tried to set it twice—and twice it clenched over. The plans call for a -6 rivet in that hole, but it is too short. The kit came with -6’s and -8’s, but not 7’s. I cut down some -8’s and checked them with a rivet gauge trying to determine the height. Most of the -7’s drove ok, but this particular one is being very contrary. Nancy drove the other 20 rivets while I got inside the fuse to buck them. Climbing in and out of the fuse is beginning to wear on me! Think I’ll call it a day and try to get that last one when we’re fresh in the AM.
