Began riveting elevator

Tonight I began riveting the right elevator. 

   
 
Started off by riveting the nutplates and reinforcement plates to the spar. Then I riveted the inboard rib.  

 
Then I riveted the elevator horn k.  Here you can see the rivets for the rib to spar attachment and the factory heads of the elevator horn rivets.  

   
Here’s the shop heads of the elevator horn rivets.

   
 I then riveted the end rib and counterweight rib to the spar. Here you can see the shop heads. 

I then prepped the the skin with the counterweight skin and counterweight. Next up is to begin riveting the skeleton to the skin.
