Thumbs up Fuselage riveting done

For me, finishing the fuselage skins was more satisfying than flipping the canoe. After removing the vinyl and cleaning with MEK, I just sat there for a minute ogling the shiny aluminum.



Couldn't have done it without my trusted rivet shooter Carol.

Default Back in the game!

After a long hiatus, my RV-7 has joined me in my new home in Redwood City, CA. Let the building begin...again.

Any RV builders nearby?
