Firewall takes final shape
Tonight I was able to get most of the firewall riveted together. I used a back-riveting technique and it worked wonderfully! The results are a nice smooth forward surface. See for yourself.
Nice smooth forward firewall surface.
Aft side of the firewall. Shop heads on the rivets come out so nice when back-riveting. All that's left are a couple of brackets, aux fuel pump bracket and the brake cylinder bracket.
