Task: Assembled the elevator skeleton, assembled
the trim servo reinforcement plate, and backriveted to the
started by dimpling the K1000-6 nutplates and riveted them
to the E-616PP reinforcement plate with AN426AD3-3.5 rivets.
I then clecod the trim reinforcement plate
to the skin to check for proper fit.
I then riveted the rod end bearing reinforcement
plates and plate-nuts to the E-702 spar with AN470AD4-4 rivets.

the E-702 spar with AN470AD4-4 rivets.
The control horn was then riveted to the E-702
spar and the E-705 main rib with AN470AD4-4 rivets.
reinforcement plate was then back-riveted to the main skin

blue protective film in preperation for back-riveting the
stiffeners to the skin.
