More Right Wing Bottom Skin Riveting (Wings)
2.5 Hours

The Bradfields, some good friends of ours from Indiana, recently moved to Fort Collins. Derek is a pilot and has been offering me riveting help for a while. Yesterday, he and his son A.B. came over and helped out.

We finished the right wing bottom inboard skin! This is far easier with a helper (or two). Although I know some people do it, I would not attempt to do this solo.

We also realized that I had neglected to remove the blue plastic from the inside of the inboard skin before I started riveting it in place. Luckily, we were able to remove all of it using the inspection panels and the holes in the ribs.
