Riveting the left horizontal stabilizer

6.0 hours

I don't have any pix of the riveting. Not much to see. I got all the rivets into the left stabilizer. Had to drill out a few here and there because the gun would slip and the rivet wouldn't be all the way in the dimple. I started to do a few slow hits before cranking the gun up full, and that took care of that.

This is where I stopped. I got the nose ribs into the skin. I had more trouble this time than the first which is kind of strange. Must have been tired.
