Riveting Trim tab

2.5 hours

After disassembling the tab, deburred, dimpled, and primed the skin and spar. Then riveted on the trim tab horns using the squeezer. Next was to do the bottom skin to spar rivets. The access was a little tight but the tungsten-steel rivet bar fit in nicely and it worked out ok This picture shows the setup for holding the assembly while I was putting in the rivets
