Asssembling the horizontal stabilizer – Part 5

Finished riveting the nose ribs to the forward spar, except for the inboard nose rib on each side–too difficult to access in the cradle. I’ll do those after everything else on the HS is complete, as the plans suggest.

Next, I started riveting the skins to the forward spar. Where to start? I basically started on the right bottom, from inboard to outboard, skipping every other rivet (where the hole has a cleco). Here’s a picture:

I only got through a few dozen rivets tonight, but I’m ready to pick it up tomorrow.
