Fuselage Riveting Day 4

Another round of riveting today, but this time it was all solo. I managed to get quite a bit done by myself, and I didn't cause any damage in the process.

Without the forward bottom skin installed I was able to reach over and buck many of the forward skin to stiffener rivets myself. Being 6-foot-3 comes in handy sometimes.

Same thing on the other side; I had to attack a few of the rivets from underneath, but it didn't pose a problem either.

With the longerons now installed I riveted several of the aft fuse bulkheads to the skins, again all solo.
