Task: Completed the right side of the HS.
Today we started on the right side of the HS. We first clecod
and riveted the top side of HS-707 to the 601PP skin.
HS-708/706 was then clecod into position to form the bend
radius in the skin. The bottom of HS-707 was then riveted
to the skin. HS-708 was then removed and the left HS and front
spar assembly was then attached to the right side. We clecod
the skin to HS-702, HS-706, 708, 404, and 405. LP4-3 blind
rivets were used to attach HS-707/708/702. We then riveted
the skin to the front spar and ribs.
have been riveted. HS-404/405 on the inboard edge and 706
on the outboard edge awaits.
Some of the rivets in HS-404 have been set
Riveting the skin to HS-706
Here is the inside of the left HS. The mar
marks are from the bucking bar. I've taped off all the rivets
so HS-702 can be sanded and reprimed. We learned our lesson
and put the green painters tape down on the right side to
prevent these marks. It worked very well.
