Task: Finished riveting the rear spars

Grabbed the rivet gun today and shot the rest of the rivets on the left rear spar. I then shot all of the rivets solo on the right rear spar. Went very fast!

Here I've set the 38 rivets that join the W-707D and 707G to the 707A rear spar. Not all rivets are set due to future inferface with other wing parts

Then I riveted the W-707E center reinforcement plate onto the spar. Only 5 rivets are set for now.

Finally I set 6 rivets on the W-707F end reinforcement to the spar.
