6-06 steps 2-9 v stab skin prep
Finished preparing the vertical stabilizer skin parts with final drilling, deburring, dimpling, and attaching nut plates. For the second time this build I forgot to include the nut plate in a riveted connection and had to drill out the rivet; I want to stop making that dumb mistake. On the bright side, I noticed the mistake immediately because of the appearance of the rivet's shop head, so at least I'm improving at assessing rivet joints.
Next I test fit the main skin to the vertical stabilizer skeleton, and made notes about where the ribs need refining for tomorrow.
