Aft Deck and starting on the Fuse Gussets

After turning the fuse over, the next thing to focus on was the aft deck.   Basically you need to level the fuse in all directions and then make sure any twist is out as you drill the aft deck.  Mine was off so little that I didn't really need to put any pressure on it before clamping it to hold it in place.  After I drilled all the holes in the longerons, I removed the deck and taped the spacers that I had fabricated the night before.  These guys make sure the top deck has a flat surface throughout the aft section to support it before final riveting.  This process went well and other than prepping and priming I am pretty much complete with the deck
