Center Section Rib Riveting
So the riveting has gone well, all except for one rivet. I will need to drill it out, and hopefully replace with another one, or even widen the hole and replace with a bolt. I hope not to do that due to the added weight, but won't know until the rivet is out and I can inspect the hole. All other rivets are pefect though and this one will come around with a little TLC. Next step is F705 onto this assembly, then baggage ribs, and bottom skin. Not long now and I will be joining to the aft fuse.
