Rear Top Skin

Some odds and ends complete and lots of progress on the rear top skin today.  First I finished the second J channel and thought of a pretty good way to keep it centered for drilling.  Basically I drilled the first hole centered on the rear most point on the J channel where it would overlap F-708 bulkhead.  Then I used those two points to start the clecoing of the rear skin.   The first couple pics show this..  Once I was finished clecoing, sure enough, the center lines drawn on the stringers lined up perfectly and will be drilled soon enough.

After I installed the skin, I worked on completing the Bell Crank support rib and finished riveting it to F-706.  Also, I worked on some tabs that will support the conduit runs under the seats and baggage compartment.
