Riveting baffle to skin

Sat, Sep 13th 2008

Tonight I riveted the T-702-L baffle to the T-701-L skin using 426AD3-3.5 rivets and the hand squeezer. The pneumatic sqeezer would ahve been preferable, but the distance from the rivet line to the vertical portion of the baffle (and my limited selection of dies), prevented it's use. I removed every other cleco on one side, then wet installed the rivets with proseal. When I was done, I removed the remaining clecos and installed the rest in that side, then flipped the tank over and repeated the procedure.
