Fuselage order is in the mail!

1.5 hrs, 49 rivets
Finished right leading edge assembly. Did all the riveting solo.

Started on the leading edge light installation. Riveted the base plate together, then installed platenuts on the #6 and #7 ribs. This would have been a LOT easier if I'd remembered to do it before riveting the ribs to the skin. Doh!

Layed out the hole for the lens and started cutting on it. Wanted to just start it, and will finish the cut tomorrow.

As the post title says, another watershed event occurred. The fuselage order is now in progress. 9 weeks puts arrival somewhere around the second week of May.
