Started riveting the side skins

Finished peeling the vinyl from the right side.

Remy helped my shoot some rivets so we got the aft bottom skin riveted to the bulkheads.

Then since I had his help we riveted the side skin to the bottom skin. I figured we’d start here while I had his help as I cannot reach those by myself. Unfortunately I read the note in the plans that said to start on the flats and work around the curve after we riveted this. I think If i just work around the curve and work my way up the side it will be fine. I’ll do the other side in the correct order.

All in all good progress today.
