Just closing out the last few rivets on the tail cone join. There area a couple of rivets at the lap joint on F01470 L/R that appear to be next to impossible to get a good result from bucking or back riveting. Thinking and it is being suggested to me by multi experienced builders and A/P to use flush cherry max rivets.
I don't really want to start a gigantic debate. I'd just like to know if there is an easy way for me to figure out which CM rivet to use. The callout is for an AN426AD3-4.5.
Specifically, Page 30-08, Step 8. Riveting the last row of rivets in the forward side, bottom center, aft center and aft side skins.
I think the tail cone join has been a pretty good success, all the riveting has turned out good. The rivets in the lower radius were very difficult to achieve perfection. I'd say they're good enough. I would have liked perfection, but I am learning I'll always be one rivet gun blast short of perfection. . .
