Installing aileron gap fairings

Category: 3: Wings (Total 309h) — Steffen @ 22:40 — Hours: 3

My friend Bent is coming over tomorrow to help rivet on the bottom skins, so I had to get ready for that tonight.

I got the aileron gap fairings and the flap braces primed at work the other day.

But before I could install them, I had to rivet on the inboard aileron brackets. I could almost reach all the rivets with my squeezer, only the top 2 rivets I had to rivet using the rivetgun.

After that I dimpled the aileron gap fairing skin holes,…

..and the skin trailing edge holes.

Now I could cleco on the gap fairing…

…and rivet it. All rivets could be reached with the pneumatic squeezer. After this I did the other wing the same way.
