Brief Description:  Aft Fuselage.

Before starting work on the fuselage today, I first moved the ailerons, flaps, and tanks to the airport, and moved the firewall and 704 bulkheads to the shop to make room in the spare bedroom for family coming for Thanksgiving (photo 1). I also met Paul Rosales and Tobias Treichel (RV-7 builder from Germany) for lunch in town, and a project visit of my fuselage in the shop, and wings at the hangar.

In the shop, I finished devinyling and deburring the aft fuselage side skins. I used the aft bottom skin and J-channels as straight edges for scoring the rivet lines with a soldering iron. These skins are now ready for dimpling, then final assembly.
