Tail Cone - Almost Done

I had hoped to finish the tail cone riveting last night and got about 90% there, but realized I just wasn't on my game and had a few bad rivets.   When that happens its time to stop and come back another day.  I am finding the tail cone is more difficult to rivet the traditional way than the wings were; for some reason I think due to the curves or expanse of metal or something..  Anyway, tonight I will try some different techniques to see if I can get my rivets to be a bit more perfect.   If I had to do it again I would probably look into back riveting this piece.

Sorry for the blurry pics taken with my i-phone, Bekah has run away with the other camera.
