Yeah I was just thinking of the two rows of rivets that join the aft and mid sections. I'll leave the corner ribs until I put the side skins back on or at a minimum I'll leave some of the corner rib rivets out.

I realize that the instructions are getting less and less as construction continues. In general I deal with that but at times I'm not sure if I missed something or it just isn't there. That tends to waste a bunch of time as I have to review the instructions again to make sure I didn't just miss something. I'm thankful for those who have done such a great job of documenting their builds. I read through pages of Bruce Swayze's web site and finally found a comment about this omission. Thanks Bruce you have been very helpful.
