Builder Assist Day

I had plans to spend a few hours in the shop today working on the flaps, but the bat phone rang. It was my friend John. He has recently started an RV-9 and wanted some help getting started riveting the empennage skins. I felt it was my civic duty to assist him so I told him to put his parts in the car and head on over. We spent a few very productive hours riveting and talking and I think he went home with a little more riveting confidence.
