Riveting of rear spar on vertical stabilizer

1.5 hours

Next I cleco'd in the rear spar and started the riveting of this to the skin and the ribs. Most of the rivets are done with the squeezer, but I had to use the gun on 2 rivets near the middle rudder brackets. The squeezer wouldn't quite get on the rivets, not enough clearance.

Vertical Stabilizer finished

I cleaned off the blue ink writing and the vertical stabilizer is done.
