Dimpling fuselage skins

Today was a backbreaking marathon of fuselage skin dimpling. We started the morning by finishing the dimpling on the forward bottom skin.

Along the way, we match drilled the rudder cable fairings to the tailcone side skins. They look pretty cool.

And after about 10 hours of work, we finished dimpling the last of the fuselage skins (not counting the top surface skins...turtle deck, etc...) with this, the center section bottom skin. Thanks, Dad, for all the effort today. It was very productive. Tomorrow will probably be preparation for priming since Thursday is supposed to be sunny and in the mid 60's.
