Brief Description:

Clecoed the VS skeleton to the VS skin and got out the 2x gun, pneumatic squeezer, and the tungsten bucking bar.  I can say that these three tools made this much easier.  The 2x gun is lighter and shorter than the 3x gun while the tungsten bar is dimensionally smaller than an equivalent weight steel bucking bar.  A few of the rivets are over-driven but I think they are better left alone instead of the drill out and replace debacle.


First rivet in the nose rib driven with 2x gun and tungsten bucking bar.  Very glad to have both as the space inside is tight.

Entire section infront of the front spar is riveted.

Look inside from the bottom of the VS towards the mid nose rib.
