Brief Description: Finished match drilling, began dimpling
Finished match drilling the HS skins to the skeleton. Marked fairing screw holes and disassembled all the parts, marking them so they will be reassembled in the same way. Deburred the skins and then dimpled the left skin. The vinyl is still on the outside of the skin but removed from the inside. Experienc building the -6A showed that the female die would cut a small 'washer' from the plastic during dimpling, but the male die never did. Also, the plastic is too thin to interfere with dimple formation. The plastic will, of course, be removed before riveting. Wherever it would reach, a hand squeezer was used to dimple; elsewhere I used the C-frame tool.
