Now for the other flap brackets

I started out just like the inboard flap bracket and riveted the main bracket in, leaving the outer edge holes empty for the attach angles later. I put the W-925C in place an noticed right away that I wouldn’t be able to get to this rivet with the double offset rivet set that I already had. The 5 1/2 inch length of the set, combined with the length of the rivet gun would not fit between the ribs. So I ordered a single offset rivet set from Averys, which is only 1 1/2 inches long. Meanwhile I went ahead and riveted the top rivets from rear spar in and riveted on the W-925B longer angle bracket. I'll get these top 4 rivets in tomorrow when Averys does their usual "next-day" delivery. Love them Avery folks!
