My Dad stopped by tonight and gave me a hand with riveting the bottom skins on. We finished up the inboard skin and got started on the outboard skin. Together we only got the first rib of the outboard skin done. When he left, I was able to solo the next rib's worth of rivets. There is no way to get a clean shot of how the shop heads look, so I used a mirror and flashlight to get a visual on all of them.


Another shot of the right wing. Hopefully my Dad will make an appearance tomorrow night and we can finish up this wing!


Since it was chilly in the garage tonight, I wore a long sleeve t-shirt to keep warm. This had a hidden benefit of also buffering my arms from the ribs as I put them through the lightening holes. I know some people put plastic tubing slit in half over the rib opening, but with the t-shirt it was free armor.
