Brad stopped by this afternoon to assist with these steps. Riveted the firewall assembly to the forward fuselage bottom skin. Bolted and riveted the forward center section bulkhead to the forward fuselage ribs.
Mated and bolted the mid fuselage assembly to the forward fuselage assembly. I picked up some slightly smaller bolts from Lowes and am saving the proper bolts for later to minimize the risk of damaging them.
