Riveted the trailing edge

I flipped the elevator on to its back and started back riveting every 5th rivet then went back and did one rivet between of the 5th rivets. I kept jumping around back-riveting until I got all of the rivets done. I only partially back-riveted each rivet as indicated by the instructions. Then I flipped the elevator over and finished setting the rivets with the mushroom head riveter.
