Substituted rivets question


Getting ready to rivet the top skin to the leading edge, parts manual call out is for

CCC42 rivets, but none in the big ole bag of rivets.


There was a bag of SSK42SSBS rivets that appear to be the correct substitute, but I can not find any documentation to confirm this.


Anybody able to confirm this is in fact the correct rivet------and is there a list available of rivet substitution numbers??? My buddy Mr. Google failed me when looking for a conversion chart from one manufacturer to another :(

Sorry for the confusion, those are the correct rivets. The company that supplies the hardware has given them that name, not sure where it came from, but we confirmed today they are the CCC-42 rivets.

Mike, did they not list their part number along with the RANS number? They are supposed to be printing both part numbers on the lid.



No lid, as the rivets were in a big baggie with other baggies of rivets.

@mjstarkey48 Oh gotcha. I forgot the large quantities of rivets were in a bag. There still should have been both part numbers on there. Sorry for the confusion on that. Glad you it figured out!!

  • Manual says to leave boot Cowl off till after painting! What is the purpose of this? Maybe for installing windscreen? Can you not just install everything and just mask the windscreen or is there something else you need the Cowl off for? Steve
  • In the S21 progress report # 27 there is talk of an Assembly Alert for using VHB tape to install the lexan to the door frames. However, when I search for the assembly alert -----no joy. My kit did include the VHB tape, but there are no instructions on where to use it. It does not look like there is enough to do the entire perimeter of the door and the center seams, so I am wondering if it is only for the center seam. Or, anywhere the lexan meets the door frame? Guidance please.
  • Hi I am trying to make some room to clean out the boxes and stack the parts. I will need to make a rack. Can anyone tell me the wing skin sizes please the length and width. They will be the largest size so I can then make a multilevel rack to store the bits. I havent got the room at the moment to be able to unpack and store the bits safely so another rack inside the shed will have to be made. I need to get my inventory done asap
