Riveted Aft-most Top Skin
Today Bryan, my old flight instructor (guy on the left) and Larry came over to the house to check out the project and lend a hand. Larry is riveting here, I'm bucking and Bryan is supervising and manning the cleco pliers and rivet tape. We started riveting the aft-most top skin on. Larry was a bit uncomfortable with his work (although I assured him it was fine) so we called it quits.
Jaime and I went to dinner and while we were out I gave Burton a call and he came over and we finished riveting the aft top skin. This thing looks cool! My batts in the camera were dying so the pictures came out a bit blurry, but anyway...you get the idea.
Here you can see the left (pilot's) shoulder harness anchors. Yes, the shoulder harnesses are anchored that far aft to provide a straight path to the pilot's seat. You can also see in this picture one of the clips (slightly obscured by the cable) that holds the static tubing in place.
Here's the passenger's side cable.
