Riveted Elevator Horn and Trim Tab Spar

Prev | Next

I don’t really love working in short bursts like this, but I do what I have to. Let’s do the elevator horn tonight.

I first clecoed every other hole. The left elevator horn was actually easier to cleco on than the right. I can't figure out why.

Anyway, a few loud noises later, and I had the first six done for the day.

Nice shop heads.

And again, a few minutes after that….

Six more, for a total of 12 so far.

Then, I convince the girlfriend to come outside and try her hand at squeezing.

Looks great.

She did great, but one of the rivets split diagonally as it was squeezed. It wasn't her fault, but I'll have to replace it tomorrow.

14 rivets. 0.5 hours.
