Elevator rivets

While prepping the elevators for riveting I ran out of tape to hold the rivets for back riveting. My personal preference is to prep both elevators before riveting, so it will have to wait until tomorrow.


Here you can see the rivets all taped in for the skin stiffeners. The left elevator is sitting in the background, I’ll prep that and hopefully get them all riveted tomorrow night.


If you look closely you can see the rivets all lined up, the more I look at the polished aluminum the more tempted I am finish the plane with exposed aluminum.
