Riveting fuselage center section

Greg came over around 8:00 AM this morning and we started riveting this puppy together. He snapped a picture of me under the fuselage getting ready for a full day of bucking rivets.

Well, about 12 hours later we completed the entire center section and about half of the forward fuselage. Man, am I exhausted. It was hot today with high humidity. Spending 12 hours under the fuselage bucking was a lot of work, but the results came out great.

Here, we're pretty much agreeing that we've sweated so much today that the shirts are gonna pretty much have to be burned.

Man, does that look great! Thanks, Greg, for all the help!
