Started Riveting Forward Front Skin
Tonight Burton came over to help me rivet on the forward skin. Yes, I primed it. It was all scratched up and had epoxy all over it from my crappy taping job that I did when I was working on the canopy, so I polished out the scratches, sanded off the epoxy and scotch-brited/MEK'd/sanded it. We almost got it done but quite honestly I was getting VERY claustrophobic laying on my back on the couch cushions in the fuselage. This was the first time that Burton ever helped me that we didn't get something done. It was totally my fault as I just couldn't go on.
