Tailcone ready for final assembly

Today I was able to finish priming the entire structure of the tail cone.  Next step is riveting it all together which is always the best part.   I am a little nervous about the fit of the tail spring rod into the receiver when all is said and done, but I am sure with enough grease and pressure I can get it to fit in fine after assembly.  The risk is the receiver gets riveted into the tail cone never to come out again long before you get a chance to test the final fit.  I am pretty sure I will be OK though.  For now I have primed and painted both the rod and receiver, so I am sure it will give a long useful life even though I didn't powder coat it.
