I started riveting the skins to the bulkheads today. Several of the rivet length callouts in the drawings were a little short. I ended up using 3.5 length instead of 3's in several places and I used 5 length for all the skin to longeron rivets.
It was fun setting the row of rivets inside the tail cone that anchor the restraint lugs. I reached inside with the tungsten bucking bar and held it in place by feel while operating the rivet gun. Luckily, the shop heads turned out fine and no smilies were made today :-)
