Aft Fuse Riveting, Part 1

November 8, 2010

This weekend I reassembled the tailcone and riveted F-711 and F-712 to F-779. The first few rivets look a bit footed on F-711 so I need to go back and redo them. The rest are A-OK. Also, I need to confirm with Vans that I can use a couple of pull rivets next to the weldment where I can’t buck or squeeze.

The rest of the aft fuse is clecoed and awaits me to recruit a partner to shoot and/or buck. I have to travel next week so this might be couple of weeks away from happening. Onward.
