1.2 hours, 61 rivets
Riveted trailing edge right elevator.
Installed remaining root and tip spar rivets. Used the squeezer for the last rivet on the upper skin, and a pop rivet for the bottom skin.
Preliminary install of hinge eyebolts.

Still haven't ordered wings. Starting to spend time doing long postponed chores, and shifting the plane activities to planning, design, and cost estimation. Still a few odds and ends to do, but only enough for a few more posts.
