Airframe riveting complete

6 hrs, 48 rivets
Finished riveting top skin to fuslage, so that is the end of air frame construction. Now it's all finish work. Well, except for the canopy. Many thanks to Wayne, who came over and helped. We need to get cracking on his electrical system.

So again, just like that, shifting gears to the next major task.

Reinstalled canopy tracks, hold down blocks, and the canopy.
Torqued roll bar and hold down block fasteners.

Fit the windscreen, and started masking for sika application. Should get the Sika on tomorrow, and next weekend I'll be working on the skirts.
