More Leading Edge Work - 6 hrs.

Today I finished dimpling the rest of the parts for the leading edge, and riveted it all together.

The first rib, riveted together. Looks so good without clecos! I'm proud of how this is turning out. You can also see my newest tool next to my rivet gun, the very small tungsten bucking bar. This thing is great!

Here's a shot of how the rivets are turning out on the inside. I was careful to not scratch the alclad surface of the inside of the skin, so I'm not priming the skin. The ribs are primed, of course, as you can see.

Another shot of the rivet tails, on the inside. This is so much fun!
