Finished building firewall

Category: Firewall — Steffen @ 21:25 — Hours: 2

With all the parts prepared and primed, I could rivet the firewall together. I used the squeezer for all the rivets it could reach, then the gun and tungsten bucking bar for the rest. It all went pretty smooth.

All the firewall parts clecoed together..

Everything except the firewall recess riveted. The plans tell you to wait with riveting the recess until later in the process.

Next thing to build is the big frame that the wings get bolted to. I hope to get started on it this weekend, but I’m leaving for sweden on monday, to assist our line station in Malmö. Should be back again next weekeend.
