Today I am starting with the rivets into the ribs:
First I marked where the holes are in the ribs, plus a line 1/4″ away from the hole so I know where the 1/2″ reinforcing tape goes…
Then with an soldering iron you push a hole into the tape and fabric.
Use a 1/2″ washer with the rivet.
Then some 2″ finishing tape over the rivets
And this is the result:
Only thing left now is some finishing tape around the outside.
Also did the rivets on the elevator….
