26 Foot Exterior Buck Rivet Count
I just finished 3 hrs manually checking every single rivet, screw, and holes on my AS. I ended up finding 18 rivets that weren't perfectly flush the whole way around so I'll get a helper to hold the bucking tool tomorrow and fix them. In the process I kept a total count and heres what I found:
2,679 Buck rivets (135 hold the shell to front plate and floor channels)
201 Pop rivets holding the trim and tail lights on
208 Stainless screws in covers, lights brackets, handles, etc.
4 Lock Cylinders
12 Large Holes for vents, heaters, plumbing
57 Studs w/speednut clips for AIRSTREAM,flags,and International script
1 Entry door
3 Access doors
3,174 Potential leak points not including seams, I've checked every one along with a 45 min leak test with a pressure washer DURING a rainstorm, and I think I finally feel confident the skin is sealed and ready for interior seal with a dozen cans of flexible rubber gutter seal I'm hoping will help provide a bit of a thermal barrier to the skin as well.
