This is Not a Cry for Help

No, I have not started cutting.

This is just me (and my hairy arm) working on getting some more of the right inboard bottom skin riveted.

Hairy arm!

Yup, it’s officially three days in a row!

I have to admit, though, that it’s a lot easier when you have all the rivets preloaded, and all you have to do is start banging away on them.

Tonight, I actually got two more bays done, in just 30 minutes. I couldn’t reach 5 of the rivets, so I really will need some help.

From this angle, the 5 rivets can only be reached from below, and my arm wasn’t long enough for both bucking and shooting. I’m sure I can get these with two people.

53 rivets in 30 minutes. Next time, I’ll probably be able to knock out the rest of the inboard skin, then start prepping and riveting the outboard skin. Wuhoo!
