Managed to recruit some help today in the shape of Rupert who is building an RV7 just down the road. I’m sure we will be seeing a lot more of each other and a big thank you for your help today. We had to rivet the bottom skin to the bulkheads and stiffeners. For extra fun this has to be accomplished while the lower skin and bulkheads are upside down. For me this meant laying on the floor (accompanied by a goodly amount of moaning) while Rupert held the back riveting bar or where we couldn’t back rivet, the gun with the flat mushroom head.
Next up is the rear bulkheads.
