Brief Description:  Fuselage side skins

Another great day in the shop.

Fitted the 720 Armrests to the fuselage. Need to debur and prime them. I think I'm going to reinforce them much like other folks have done as they look pretty flimsy.

Made the conical bend at the aft end of the side skins where they join with the aft fuselage and the bottom skins. This was really nerve wracking because many people get cracks in the tight radius at the front of the bend. Mine came out perfect. Sometimes this kit is amazing how before the bend everything is a little off but after the bend all the holes line up perfectly.

Finally, trimmed the front of the longerons so they are 3/4" back from the front of the skin. Ready to drill the longerons to the side skin now. Things are moving really fast.
