Forward Bottom Skins Riveted and Sealed!

Major progress going on now. Here, the forward bottom skins are riveted and prosealed, where necessary, in place.

Another view. Special thanks again to Udo for coming over and lending a hand.
It was extremely dificult to get these rivets and screws in place. Why? Because the gear boxes are on the inside leaving minimal access.

Here, the air ramp is sealed and riveted in place. The sealant will prevent any oil or fluid from seeping into the fuselage.

I used the extra proseal to seal up the lap joint at the center bottom skin and mid side skins. It turn out very nice! (Fuselage shown inverted)
