Wing - Right Wing

2004-08-12 - Started riveting the right wing skeleton. (2.5 Hrs).

I got Doom3 last week, so I have been a little pre-occupied this week. However, it's time to get back to work, so I finally started working on the right wing. The good news is that as soon as I set the first rivet in the right wing skeleton, I was at the same point as I was after 116 hours on the left wing. I am finally starting to benefit from having done both sets of ribs at the same time.

I got most of the skeleton riveted today, and I only had two bad rivets. Both happened when I tried to rivet with my left hand and buck with my right. All I had to do was turn the wing skeleton over.

The right wing skeleton, all cleco'd together, to insure that I did indeed match-drill all the ribs, and that everything fit. All I had to do was to look at my log, but I am going slow, to be sure.

This is the bad rivet that I decided to leave in. I really didn't like drilling out a rivet in the main spar, but I had to because it got pretty mangled, plus it was right next to this one (can't have two bad rivets right next to each other).
