Fuselage - Forward Section
First day after my three week flooring project, I just wanted to get the left side skin cleco'd on and ready to rivet. Turns out there was a few more things to do first.
|This used to be...|
|here, before the wood flooring was installed. These are the things that keep you from building airplanes. This was a one week project that stretched out to 3 weeks. Technically, this project is still not done.|
|First, I needed to rivet F-623 to the bottom skin. Again, not too close to where the rolled edge slides between F-623 and F-776.|
|Then, F-715 needed to be riveted before the side skin was installed.|
| Let's not forget pre-riveting F-704H to the side skin.|
Edit 4-16-06: Do not rivet the bottom hole FWD of the wing spar cutout! See 4-15-06.
|I know, you're probably saying "How many times are we going to see this?" Well, hopefully, this is the last time. Ready to rivet the left side skin to the center section.|
|Just to make it official that the longerons will not be removed again, I riveted the AFT section to the longerons at every triple hole location--you'll know what I mean when you get there.|
