Task: Primed rear spar parts and began assembly.

Spent 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.
