Thank You

Gil and Larry-

I really appreciate the advice. I will plan to add a doubler along the rib, along with another rivet.

VAF is truly an invaluable resource.

Best,
Ethan

I just looked at my drill bits and I must have accidentally used a 1/8 bit to drill out the holes instead of a #30 bit.

Thanks

Joe- Thank you for the link and advice. I will look into getting both a #30 and #40 reamer.

Bill- I appreciate it. I will be sure to use rivet tape over the rivets when I go to drive them.

Thank You

Thank you for the tips. I ran the #30 bit through the holes again and the rivets were able to be coaxed into place.

Best,
Ethan

West End Pizza

West End Pizza, located across the street from the Hilton. Very good pizza and we ended up going back again! Accessible through the same gate used to get to Friar Tucks, or through the Hilton gate.
