It's growing!

I told you it would be a while until my next update.  However, I spent the whole day in the garage again today and at least 4 hours with Travis helping me last night.  Travis and I managed to get a significant portion of the tail cone riveted and he is coming back on Tuesday to help me finish it up.  Today I moved on to the center section of the fuselage.  Lots of edge dressing, deburring, and fluting but by the end of the day I had most of the thing cleco'd together and ready for final drilling.

I also forgot to mention that I got a goody in the mail last week while I was gone.  My Tosten grips arrived!

I just couldnt wait. Had to take one out and give it a try.  To bad they don't come with wiring diagrams.

Yep, it fits nicely.

The center section of the fuselage all cleco'd together ready for some drilling in the morning.

The result of our work.  just the aft part to do yet.
