Began Fuselage Dimpling

With most of the countersinking complete it was time to fire up the compressor and dimple some of the smaller pieces.

Before I started dimpling, I had two more parts to countersink. I've been using my new 12V drill and love it. It's small but powerful, and the rapid charger and Li-Ion are such an improvement over my last NiCad powered drill.

Small parts dimpled and countersunk, time for the larger parts.

This bulkhead assembly is so unwieldy, but it is now deburred and dimpled.

Before calling it quits for the day, I deburred the two forward vertical rows of rivets in the aft fuse.
