Post for Sunday, July 4.
3.5 hrs, 52 rivets
Was getting ready to post yesterday when the computer popped up a virus alert. Spent the rest of the evening figuring out what to do, but missed getting the post done. Fortunately, only one file was affected and cleaning with the recovery console seems to have resolved the issue. Scans now show it as clean.

Decided to stop fooling around and get some riveting done. Started on the forward deck structure. There are some difficult rivets. This is one of those times when you can't have enough squeezer yokes, and rivet sets. Had to trim the left and right subpanel bottom flanges to allow clearance for the tank vent lines. I wonder why I had to do this, and the plans don't say anything about it. Hmmm.
