Brief Description:  Primed spar, riveted plate nuts and dimpled access

Great day in the shop today. I started off by taping off an area aroun whrere the countersinks are and shot some self etching primer on the spar.

After the primer dried, I started riveting the 120 K1100 platenuts on the spar (thought it would never end). It went pretty easy. I clecoed all of the k1100's on with one cleco and stuck a rivet on the other side and went along a squeezed the rivet. Then I removed the cleco, stuck a rivet in the hole and squeezed the remaining rivet.

Once I got all those done I riveted the 24 K1000 platenuts for the access panel.

The last thing I did was to matchdrill the aft part of the access panel to a #28 drill and use my #6 dimple to make some dimples to accept the #6 screws on the straight side of the access panel. (Make sure not to dimple the rest of the holes on the access panel at this time, I beleive that these are #8 screws)
