After a perfect storm of distractions over the past few weeks, including a trip to the Avalon Airshow, I’m finally back to work on the elevators. I completed riveting the inspection doubler plate to the bottom skins, rib halves to all skins, and rear spars to the point where the skin assemblies could be cleco’d together. Next step is to use the weird RV-10 specific bucking bar to rivet the remaining skin halves to the rear spar.
I managed to clumsily drop my 12 inch back rivet set on the floor, breaking the delrin ring. Cleaveland tools sell replacements for $7, so now I get to spend more on mail/freight to get a replacement here.
I got to look over not one but two awesome RV-10’s at the air show, and it was worth the trip interstate for that alone.
