Riveting ribs to spars

4.0 hours

Now that the ribs are done, cleco'd them to the spars and started riveting. Nathaniel helped me do the front of the ribs to the main spar using the rivet gun. With his help, we cruised through all the rivets. After that, I used the squeezer to attach the ribs to the rear spar. The picture shows the finished assembly.
