You're making good progress and it's looking good.

One tip: The torques seal is not supposed to be on the bolt. It's between the nut and a solid surface. See http://www.eaavideo.org/detail/video/29739769001

Thanks for the nice comment!

I disagree with this method on using torque seal. I think it is more important to know if the nut has rotated with respect to the bolt (theoretically if it's not on the threads the bolt could rotate and the nut remain stationary and you wouldn't know). If I have to remove a bolt with torque seal on it I am just going to replace it anyways.

Agreed
It should be a line from bolt to nut to surface. Anything turns and it's easily noticed.

I agree the torque strip should be from the surface onto the nut to the bolt. I think the video is mistaken in that the torque strip should not be on the “bolt” side of the fastener; but it definetly needs to indicate if the nut has turned on the bolt.

Well there isn't a lot of pics in this post but the one that is says a lot.

Mating the center section to the aft fuselage was a pain, the side skins were easy. Let me rephrase that, clecoeing the side skins was easy, I'm not trying to jinx myself for the conical bends tomorrow.

haha Kent is just a little off, I wish I could put that much time in. June was about 90 hrs, this month I am already at about 65, pretty sure I will be breaking 100 this month no problem at all. I am a teacher so summer breaks let me really cruise along. During the school year an average to good month is 50-65 hrs. One thing that makes a really big difference during the school year is when I get home I don't do anything else until I have at least 1-2 hours logged, every night. Someone once said it's a marathon not a sprint.
