After taking time off to recover from my previous mistakes. I solicited help from Tom Webster, who just finished a RV-7. Tom gave both Brad and I a refresher on how to rivet the VS. I riveted, Brad used the tungsten bucking bar, and Tom supervised and mentored. Brad got the fun job of holding the bucking bar inside the VS.
In between all the last minute time outs of the OSU/Xavier game, we got about 3/4 of the intermal rivets knocked out.
This time around everything went smooth as a silk with no problems at all. This really helped rebuild my confidence levels.
