I was surprised to see the double offset back riveting set showup today. I ordered it two days ago from Avery, but I was concerned that with the inclimate weather (snow and ice) that it would of delayed the shipment. Cool, now I have nothing holding me back. My dad is coming over Friday evening to help me hopefully at least finish up the right wing.


The Avery backriveting set does not have the pin through the upper portion of the set. It looks like they put the end of the rivet set in a lathe where the spring sits against the rest of the backriveting set. This is a much better design, and probably evolved from the issue that I experienced.


I spent some time final installing the right fuel tank. I torqued down all of the AN509 screws I put in and also the bolts for the z-brackets. I then dabbed some torque seal on them.


Next I played around with the fit of the left tank until I got it right. Then I clecoed on the skin. My hands are killing me now from all of those clecoes.
