Brief Description:  Finished riveting the HS (again!)

Riveted the last rivets to the in-spar ribs. Put the rear spar/tip rib assembly in place and riveted the spar to the ribs with LP4-3 rivets as called out in the plans. Riveted the tip ribs to the forward spar and squeezed all the perimeter rivets for the skins. Finally, riveted the inboard ribs as the forward spar. Other than the last rivets, which I may do over later, I am very happy with the results; I managed to get the new skins on without denting them or requiring odd rivets to fix enlarged holes from the drilling out process. The skeleton is not as pristine as it was but I don't think it is worth doing the whole HS over just to avoid some light rub marks and scratches on the skeleton. They don't affect the strength and won't be visible on the completed aircraft.

This time it's wrapped in bubble-wrap and put out of the way.
