Started Riveting Aft Fuse
Today Jaime came out and we spent two hours banging rivets on the aft fuse. We started by riveting the bulkheads to the bottom skin, then started riveting the side skins to the bottom skin. We backriveted these rivets.
We also riveted the bottom aft skin joint.
Here you can sort of see our overall progress. I do have some oil-canning here. I'm not sure if this is normal and it will straighten out as it gets riveted or if I should taken immediate corrective action. I'm posting a few messages to my normal lists and we'll see what they say.
Here's a video I took of the oil canning issue.
