Rivets into ribs

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….
