Riveting the Mid and Forward Section

September 8, 2013

We got a ton accomplished this weekend.  It was hot, humid and just plain miserable in that garage.  The portable AC was barely able to keep you cool when it blasting on you.  Michelle and I spent two long days getting the riveting done.   Here’s the shot.

There are some clecos still in.  They have to stay there until the upper skins are in place, but the sides and the bottoms are done.
