Flying a Vans RV-10.

Elevator Ribs

Worked on the next step of the elevators which was to back rivet the access reinforment plates and rib halves onto the elevator skins. Nutplates were also riveted to the reinforcement plates and spars.

Tried out a new process with the elevators. I am priming a section of parts as I need them instead of everything in one big bunch. It breaks up the monotony a little. It’s very convenient because I am using the rattle can version of the primer. It is working out good. Still no need to bother with all that extra time and prep and cleanup with the HVLP gun. Glad I threw that thing in the dumpster after its first use.
