Leading Edge Riveting (Wings)
1.0 Hours

This evening, the balloon was nearly identical to its size last night--it may be just a very bit smaller, but the pressure was falling today. I'm ready to declare this tank LEAK FREE. Woohoo!

Emily and I riveted the remaining interior ribs of the leading edge. The very last rivet we drove was crooked/proud and had to be drilled out to #30. We'll stick an oops rivet in there.

I still needed to sand out some scratches in the joint plate and prime it before we could do the inboard rib. Tomorrow, we should be able to finish the leading edge. Then I'll get the landing light installed before it's joined permanently to the spar.
