Date: 9/09/09
Task: F
inished the HS. I borrowed a small bucking bar from a friend and was able to buck all the rivets along the rear spar that interfere with the stiffeners. It went very quickly! I squeezed the AD4 rivets that attach the rear spar to HS-706 and HS-405.

Here again is the painters tape I've been using to cover up rivets before driving. It really keeps the skins looking nice!

The HS is done!
