Bulkhead Riveting

Time: 4 Hours

Today I got to riveting the halves of the bulkheads together.

IMG_4722.JPGI finished deburring the remaining bulkhead tops and they are ready from priming as well. Since I need to rivet the seatbelt backing plates I primed those tonight so I can work on them tomorrow.
