Riveting trailing edge

After a long hiatus, caused by moving, I did a little work on the trailing edge. The sealant was setup a long time ago, so removed the cleco's and put rivets in all the holes. Then the long process of back-riveting, and so on trying to keep the trailing edge straight. It came out beautifully. Not more than a sixteenth inch waver in the edge. Hard to see.

Here is a closer look at the shop head side of the trailing edge rivets. They look pretty good.
