Riveting Ribs onto the Skins

Today I riveted a couple of the ribs onto the skins of the horizontal stabilizer. I’m very happy with my work since I was very nervous about accidentally creasing the skins and putting a “smile” into my perfect skins. I did this twice on my very small practice kit in short order. Today’s rivets went in perfectly.

I’m waiting on an inspection at this point since any more progress would make the internal skeleton concealed.
