Finally riveting again

I probably shouldn't have said "finally" in the title because I have a lot of riveting ahead of me but I find that the riveting part is the most fun simply because its the final step of assembly for any part of the project.  This week I finished up the priming and have started riveting parts

A couple of the rear bulkheads in the tailcone.  You can see the tie down mount riveted to the bulkhead on the right.
Bulkhead frames riveted together

Riveting the J stringers to the bottom and sides.  I'm using a "back-riveting" technique and there is a 12x24" hunk of steel (from my table saw and not visible in this picture)  that I am using as the backing bar.
