Completed Riveting Tailcone Bottom Skin

This evening I completed riveting the tailcone bottom skin F-1078 to the side skins F1073-L&R. I used the back riveting technique that others have used with success. My stainless back riveting plate allows 11 rivets to be done simultaneously. I may make a longer back rivet plate if it becomes an issue.

Also riveted F-1055-L&R to the side skins.

I had two rivets that needed to be drilled out and replaced. One required an “oops” rivet.

Time today 3:03. Total time 19:30.
