I finished hand squeezing the rivets along the rear spar.
I had put off the rivets that interfere with the stiffener.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy a no-hole yoke or drive them.
After taping up the bucking bar I found it was by far the
easiest thing to do. Getting the hang of it and working quickly
got the best of me as I riveted through a few holes that are
supposed to be left open for the tail fairing. I drilled out
about 4 rivets and made sure to mark them on the opposite
side so I didn't repeat myself.
Finishing up the rear spar. Notice the tape
covering the remaining rivets on the top and clecos in the
same position on the bottom.
