My dad came over tonight and helped me bang out the left outboard bottom skin. We really moved on this thing, shooting about 300 rivets in 2 hours. No drillouts either! This was my first time using my new tungsten bucking bar from Dan, and it was the perfect size to set almost 99% of the rivets on the skins.


If I had to be picky, there is some slight oilcanning in two of the panels on the bottom of the wing. I think this is due to me drilling the skins when it was cold in the garage (50 - 60) and riveting them when it was much warmer out (80-90). Thermal expansion is a bitch!
