Task: Completed right side of HS
Today I completed the right HS. It went SO much faster than
the left side last night. I was very cautious about drilling
the two holes through HS-404, HS-702, HS-710/714, and HS-405.
A regular drill wouldn't fit between the rib, my Sioux wouldn't
fit, and an angle drill wouldn't fit either. It took a lot
of marking, measuring, and remarking. I think I spend almost
2 hours drilling 4 holes last night. Today I drilled all four
in about 10 minutes after already having the measurements.
Detail D-D on DWG 3 is very difficult to make sense of at
first. It all made sense once I realized there were no holes
shown in the drawing, but rather arrows leading to given rivet
I am match drilling HS-601PP to HS-702.
A partially complete HS!! Now the real works begins. I need
to debur, sand, dimple, and countersink all these holes before
I can even think about priming.
