Here it is. For all those interested in Airplanes and Airstreams. It covers applicable riveting and aluminum skin repairs. The compatible use of 2 x 4 lumber and the use of chop saws, hammers, bending and forming by boot, dent removal (sort of), clecos and riveting and the need for a generator on the road.

For some reason I see many of the Forum Members represented here.

Optimal Jet, Aviation Videos. panoramic pictures, aircraft parts

No that looks like fun! I could get into Aircraft salvage in the Bush. Kind of a surly crew though.....

Wow,
They never taught those techniques in my Navy airframes class.
I must be chicken, because I wouldn't have been in that takeoff without a zero-zero ejection seat.
thanks for the post,
Ken
