Nutplates & Armrests

I managed to drag my butt out to the shop for a bit tonight. I've decided I really need to make a big push here in the next few weeks to try and get this fuselage complete. I just seem to be getting hung up on a what seems like a thousand little tasks, and I still have the skins to dimple. My goal is to have ALL of the prep work completed by the end of this week so that I can start final assembly next week.

The first small task I performed tonight was to rivet the nutplates onto the F-715 Seat Ribs.

Next on the list was to cut and drill two pieces of hardware store aluminum angle that I will be using to reinforce the armrests.
