Van’s light box kit #3

I imagine that I’m at the point in the project where it starts to feel like the thing you are actually building. I was able to sneak into the hangar for an hour after arrive from UAE today. It was a fun session as I did drilling, dimpling, pop rivets, flush rivets, universal head rivets, squeezed, bucked, back riveted, nut plates, and more. It felt like a bunch of skills coming together. I hadn’t done AN470 rivets yet (universal head), and I definitely made a few mistakes along the way. The first side of rivets vs the second were night and day.
