1.4 hrs
Fabbed the backing plates for the steps. They look different because the steps are a bit different, and that's because the curve is a bit different on both sides.
Also removed the one BAD rivet set the night before. Started making a backing plate for the forward edge of the step - this plate would also go in between the 970 and the baggage corner rib. But I need to get some expert advice on how to repair the mess on the 970 skin. I'm tempted to just put a 470AD4 rivet there and call it a day.
