I riveted the side skins to the longerons, side stiffeners and the bulkheads.
The tail wheel spring mount must be shimmed properly between the rear bulkheads and then bolted in place.
I was able to pull the skins at the junction of the aft bottom skin piece after riveting. It turned out better than I thought it would.
I was able to reach over the top of the side skin to buck the rivets along the stiffer and longeron.
Here's some shots of the shop heads along the longeron and stiffener.
The tabs on the bulkheads pulled down nicely to the skins after riveting.
