Lower Fuselage Riveting

There are some very difficult areas to rivet in the lower fuselage ribs and bulkheads. I screwed up a few rivets then had to drill them out and do it again. This just increases your frustration and you wind up screwing more up. I inspected every rivet after putting them in and I feel good about the finished product. Saturday was spent on the frames and Sunday went to the skins. I had a good friend help me out on the fuselage skins since you can not do this by yourself. It was some awesome help and I couldn't believe how fast it went. Although we didn't get the entire part done, he is going to stop by later in the week to help me finish the aft skin. Thanks Adam!
