A Website designed for Van's Aircraft Homebuilders, helping them find the information
they need to build the most dynamic aircraft in the world. Here you will find Articles, Resources, and Videos,
revealing information about every aspect of Homebuilding an RV. This is an independent website, not associated
with Van's Aircraft, but built by people who are familiar with RV construction, having participated in the building process.
The majority of riveting on the RV-12iS is done with the LP4-3 Pop Rivet. Most go in very easily, but some require a great trick from Van's, an angled wedge that allows the installation of a Pop Rivet in situations where the pop rivet gun barrel is too large to use perpendicular to a surface.
