Wed 15 March 2006

The photos for today are just about the forward cockpit area - other things were done, but no photos! Some of the vertical rivets can be squeezed, but the vast majority have to be shot / bucked.
The problem rivets are the lower side locations of the mid cross-member. The RHS didn't come out well, the LHS we had a bit more of a clue. Start with the outboard locations, top to bottom - they can be shot from the aft side, then the inboard ones can be bucked from the back, starting at the bottom. Photo from forward looking aft.
A few hours were also spent on other bits, Dad did some adel clamps, I sorted various fluid fittings and misc brackets. The shed was also re-organised which should allow the wings to be reinstalled.
