Riveted Aft Deck

This weekend I did lots of odds and ends on the plane.  I finished drilling the shoulder harness supports and was able to get through a priming session covering all the deck pieces.  I didn't prime the side rails or canopy decks since I am thinking I might anodize these but still not sure.  After the priming, I was able to rivet the aft deck in place at least all the rivets I could reach with a squeezer.  I was surprised as to the rigidity that this added to the fuse.  I also drilled the 1/4 inch holes for the static ports that will need to wait until I get some pro-seal before they get installed..  Next step on the list is riveting the firewall gussets.
