New Rivet partner!!!!! She did GREAT and it was so much easier. Everything looked good but I still was not 100% happy. Each rivet still had some slight golf ball look to it......After talking to a buddy of mine that built an award winning RV8 he reminded me about SCOTHWELD.....I forgot about it.......... Put scotchweld on the tops of the understructure which will act as a shim between the skin and the ribs. After it sets up for 3-4 days rivet away and the skinn will look as smooth as silk. dont for get to dip each cleco in some carnuba wax to prevent the scotchweld from sticking to the cleco. Maybe Ill try this on the Vertical Stab.
She has natural riveting talent!!
The rivets look alot better...still not 100% Happy though.
