Big day today! The first rivets were set, and the first part completed.

Not much to say, but I got a lot of use out of the rivet squeezer and the rivet gun. I had a little snafu when I riveted the middle rib to the front spar without having the nose rib in place (the same rivets hold all three parts together.) That just meant that I got some practice at drilling out rivets. There were 2-3 other bad rivets that needed to be drilled out, but no show stoppers!

So now one part is complete and set up out of the way until it’s needed again. On to the rudder!
