Deburring, painting, Riveting firewall
|Firewall deburring and dimpling (Full size)|
The firewall itself needs most of the holes dimpled. Numerous holes on the other parts need countersinking. Did all that.

I decided to mark the locations of the cable holes, but not drill them.

Cleaned all the parts, getting ready to prime them

|Riveting aux fuel pump doubler (Full size)|
The first thing riveted is this plate.

Cleco the stiffeners on and start riveting them. I used the back riveter for most of these rivets.
