Fuse riveting order RV8 vRV7
When building the 7 the instructions called for riveting the various sections before joining fwd, mid and aft assemblies together. The 8 calls for nearly all the riveting to be done after all the parts have been match drilled. I know "follow the directions" can't hurt, but does it actually make any difference?
I'd like to get as much done as practical in my small, but warm, shop.
