2.8 hrs, 6 rivets

Stupid hot in the garage, the thermometer shows it at 97 degrees. It's hard to work mainly because sweat is not good for the aluminium. But finished dimpling the bottom skin, and primed the stringers. Then clecoed the aft fuselage back together for assembly.

Was able to squeeze the 6 bottom aft rivets on the 712 bulkhead, but it's just too difficult to shoot any of the bottom rivets without help. And no one is available. I guess it's a good day for a break. The Tour is on. How about that Mark Cavendish?!?
