Riveted the forward flanges of all the ribs to the spar with the rivet gun. My riveting seems to be getting better… Didn’t have to drill any out. I set the pressure at the compressor to 75psi for the -4 rivets. This seemed to work really well. I had tried a lower pressure in the past and the manufactured head would get all beat up. At the lower pressure, I had to hit the rivet so many times that I think it was getting work hardened.
I also finished installing the AN3 hardware and torquing to spec. Kinda sorta starting to look like wings…
Picked all the parts (including the service bulletin kit) for the rear spar.
