Brief Description: Rivert bottom skins and forward fuselage assembly
Brad stopped by and assisted today. We knocked out fourteen more rows of rivets on the bottom rear fuselage skins. Brad will be stopping back by on Tuesday to finish these up.
27-4, Steps 7 & 8
Rivet the nose gear tension fitting, center angles and nutplates to the forward fuselage rib. Rivet the left and right forward fuselage assemblies and the left and right gussters to the firewall bulkhead. Insert the flanged ducts into the heat duct tee and cleco them to the fuselage ribs. They'll get riveted later.
27-4 Completed per plans
27-5 is just the rivet size page, no work to be done on this page.
27-6, Step 1
Cleco the rudder pedal brace to the firewall bulkhead. We couldn't rivet the last two riverts. We couldn't get the rivet gun onto the manfucatured head. If we back riveted, we couldn't get the rivet set to all the shop heads. I have to get a 10 degree flush rivet set to finish these rivets.
The firewall and forward fuselage ribs
The bottom rear fuselage skins are almost completed.
