No problems, it was a non event. I use two picnic tables and did the job by myself. Slide the tables together with a couple of feet between them and then slide the respective halves together. I raised and lowered the front of the fuse and the back of the tail until the bottom skins lined up, put a few clecoes in and then raised the tail until the sides lined up, half an hour at the most. Using the picnic tables allows for a nice open area below the two halves for riveting.
Today I will start the riveting process doing as much as I can by myself before calling on my rivet buddies.
