Zenith 750 Cruzer Dad is in town again to help rivet this wing together.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Of course I can't let him have all the fun, I want to rivet too!
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer This is the wire for the nav/strobes.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer The wire runs the length of the aft spar.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Here the wing is upside down, but you can see the wire going through a grommet.

Zenith 750 Cruzer Fuel tank support.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer More fuel tank supports.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Access hole nutplates are dimpled and mounted with flush rivets left over from my Vans RV-7.

Using flush rivets will let the access cover sit flush with the skin.
