Riveting misc fuselage components

This evening my friend, Scott, was nice enough to come up to the house and help me rivet some parts in. First, we riveted in the two comm antenna doublers, one on the left and one on the right.

Next were these two tubing support brackets in the center section of the forward fuselage floor. These needed AN426AD3-10 rivets. I had just purchased some AN426AD3-16 rivets and a rivet cutter which did a great job of cutting them down to size.

We also riveted on these sub floor support angles.

...and the rudder pedal center support.

Lastly, we riveted the rudder cable fairings. We had to remove the tail feathers to get bucking access for these rivets, but that didn't take long. Thanks again, Scott, for all the help!
