Elevator close out riveting
Iím working on an RV-14 empennage kit and step 2 of the left elevator inboard close-out on page 09-21 says to rivet the E-921 Gusset to the E-00907-1L Rear Spar with AN470AD4-4 rivets. I was able to secure the lower rivet, but the upper rivet is blocked by a knuckle of the trim tab hinge. I canít lift the
E-00901A Skin high enough to rivet from the back side. Iíve looked at using a pulled rivet but again I donít have access straight at the rivet. Iíve tried to go at it offset a bit, but the pulled rivet wonít seat against the Rear Spar. I donít have a way to drill it out if I make a mistake so Iím a bit reluctant to literally & figuratively pull the trigger. Any suggestions?
