My neighbor Nicolas volunteered to help me rivet. After a quick practice session we riveted the forward skin to the aft center section flange. Bottom skins complete except for cooling ramp.

Decided to to fabricate a stainless cooling ramp. From what I have read it is less prone to cracking and more fire resistant. Traced and cut ramp from sheet.
