Brief Description:  More Right Wing Inboard Bottom Skin

With help from my wife on some of the more difficult rivets, I finished the right wing inboard bottom skin. I have some 50 lb test fishing line that I had planned to use to tie back the skins as I riveted but could not find it today to save my life. 20 lb test worked just fine. I am thinking of putting the wing back into the cradle to rivet the outboard skin. It looks as though it might be easier, especially where the skins overlap and I need to reach through the access hole to buck. I used the squeezer to rivet the bottom skin, flap brace and hinge half. That was pretty much the only "enjoyable" part of the day. I broke the skin riveting into two separate times to ease the mental anguish. So much for a marathon session in the garage.
