Brief Description:Drill and replace poor quality rivets.

Rudder skin to spar re-work.

While using the 4″ no hole yoke to squeeze all the rudder skin to rudder spar rivets a few of them got off center.  The 4″ no hole yoke is great for reaching things that are inaccessible but does have some flex that allows the rivets to get off center.  I drilled out the rivets that required it and replaced them until they were up to spec.  I also stripped the primer from the R-1012 counterbalance rib as while I was priming it got knocked off the table and got some sand in the wet primer.
