Brief Description:  Riveting skin near baggage door opening

Went searching for a lock for the baggage door, but no luck—probably have to order one. So, decided might be a good time to shoot some rivets. On the QB fuselage, the side skins are attached in various places with soft pop rivets. Although, I’m not ready to rivet on the top skin, I could see no reason not to rivet the skin in the area of the baggage door opening. I posed the question on Van’s Airforce and didn’t get any negative responses, so I proceeded to rivet. Sure hope I don't find a reason not to do this somewhere down the road! I was able to squeeze all but a couple of the AD3’s, but used the gun on the AD4’s. Still have a couple of rivets that I need some help bucking—will get those tomorrow.
