Riveting the Top Forward Skin

This is the second half, yet to be riveted...
Finally, After completing every task I could think of, we started riveting the top skin.
We started on the left longeron, center row, then worked out and over the top. Don't rivet the firewall,until after the hinges are fitted. Same deal with the fwd baggage door hinge.
Here are the elusive cherry rivets you will need to get to those impossible spots. I ordered 40. *Thanks to Matt Dralle for the tip.

Looking good JT! I have followed your site the last couple of years. We are very near the same spot, I'm lagging just a bit behind you. When do you think you'll be flying - spring?
