Riveted the counterbalance assembly to the left elevator

There are 4 rivets to put in to attached this assembly to the elevator spar. The green arrow is pointing to the outer 2 rivets that were real easy to put in. But there was a whole lot of head scratchin' going on, trying to figure the best way to get the inner 2 rivets in. I finally decided to use a long shank rivet set that I got from Averys, along with a bucking bar.
