Tank stiffener riveting

Hours Worked = 4.25

I did my first bit of true tank assembly tonight. I got six stiffeners, a drain port, and some nut plates and a cover plate riveted and sealed.

It’s slow progress, but straight forward once you get into it. I can tell that I’m getting better at it as I go.

    Hey Colleen & Ed!

    Just wanted to let you know I’m still following your -10 build progress even though I haven’t commented in a while. Looks like you’re making great progress!

    I love watching your speedy YouTube videos! They give a great sense of all the detail that goes into this build. If you have time, it would be nice to see a progress to date video; meaning you describing the build at normal speed and in pithy fashion. It would be great to hear in your words your challenges and most rewarding moments to date.

    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks, Stuart. That’s a good idea. I’ll throw something together, maybe give a tour of the parts that are laying around the house!
