Default Things to consider before installing/riveting the aft upper fuselage skin

Hey all, I know there is great direction in the manual about installation of certain things in aft fuselage, but i wanted to probe the group about things that I might forget about otherwise...once that skin is attached, it can be quite difficult to reach back there!

Well I did the mount for the ADAHRS and an avionics tray. Removable so the bucker could get in there. Wire routes for tail lights and/or trim.
