Aft deck riveted

Hours: 1.8 | Posted in Upper Fuse & Skins

Riveted the aft deck to the fuselage.  Many of the rivets can be reached with various squeezer yokes, but there are several that cannot.  Of those several, some proved rather tricky and needed to be drilled out and replaced…the biggest complication was the odd contortions required for bucking; my arm doesn’t bend like that!  My left-handed shooting skills are lacking some, which I think is to blame for the bad rivets.

Cleaned up all the drill shavings and vacuumed all the schmutz out of the fuselage.
