Jun 21, 2015 3:25 Fuselage
Aft Fuselage - It’s back, that big 7’10” long rear section of the fuselage. I reassembled the now primed parts of the aft fuselage - not a small task. It took a little flange fixing to get it fit together, just on the F-711 bulkhead where some to flanges got straightened when I dimpled. I got everything back and doubled checked with my plumb line - all square. I emptied all of my clecos on it (even the 100 more that I bought). No putting it off any longer - time to rivet. A lot of these rivets I’m going to need extra arms for, I just can’t possibly reach both sides. I managed to get the aft bottom skin riveted to the aft bulkhead and the aft side of F-711, 20 rivets, 600 or so more and I’m done!
