I riveted the aft deck on this evening. I was able to squeeze most of the rivets, but did have to shoot/buck a few. It came out fine.

Then, later, I started working on the canopy side rails and gussets. I didn't trim the side rails back when I drilled them to the longerons, so I did that first.

Yay, looks good.

Then, I cut the hole in the gusset, cleco'd it in place, and drilled it to the side rail and longeron.

Another shot...

Gratuitous shot of the whole thing.
