Brief Description:  More parts cleanup; initial riveting: Bottom surfa

While I deburred the majority of the parts yesterday, today I continued debur on the final parts for the bottom fuselate panel. Also used MEK to remove the parts ID labels from each part. This was a real pain. Most times, the labels are wet with the solvent, you wait a few seconds, and most of the label lifts off with a little residue cleanup the only remaining task. Several of these labels were either a) on there for a very long time or b) were a different material or different adhesive. Several had to be removed bit by bit, followed by more cleanup.

There are a number of #30 (1/8" hole) cleco's used on the fuselage sections. While I have more of the copper cleco's, I had only retrieved about 100 from the depts of my tool storage. I ran out of #30 cleco's during dry assembly of the parts, so I riveted the diagonal stiffener angles to the skin. These do not overlap, nor are overlaid by, any other parts, so nothing jeopardized. This freed up sufficient cleco's to continue.

Noticed that one longeron had the skin slightly overlapping the radius of the longeron "notch"; the other side feels very flush (skin to longeron). Flipped it over, checked the fit, removed cleco's and filed the edge of the skin just a thou or two. Much better fit now.
