4.5 hrs, 217 rivets
My longest break from building since Oshkosh, and the lightest week for almost a year. Kinda stuck waiting for riveting help, but also ramped up the training volume for the most swimming, running, and biking in two years!
But today I had help lined up. The first shift was a no-show, I hope he found something much more exciting than two noisy, stressful hours in my garage!
But Orion came out for the second shift and we cranked out some rivets, nearly completing the forward section riveting.
Also got some edge deburring done on upcoming parts, such as the aft bulkhead gussets, 921A canopy decks, shoulder harness anchors, and the 751 baggage bulkhead cover.
