Task: Primed rear spar parts and began assembly.
the day priming the rear spar parts.
I then started riveting the doublers onto the rear spar. Below
is the W-707-F reinforcement riveted to the spar. I was only
able to rivet the top 4 rivets as my 3 inch yoke isn't wide
enough. Time to buy a longeron yoke! The only other holes
to be riveted are the bottom right two. The rest will have
wing spars and aileron brackets riveted to the holes as well.
Next I riveted W-707E to the spar. I could only set 5 rivets
as the rest will be used for spars and aileron brackets.
Lastly I riveted W-707G and -707D to the rear spar. I could
only set the top rivets as my 3-inch yoke wouldn't fit around
the spar flange on the bottom.
