I have been working nonstop on "Work", so just picking at it. Last night got the center section disassembled and new seat frame bulkhead ready to mate up with all the ribs and such. I am an exper rivet remover...lol
Photos forthcoming

Thanks Blain. Building the whole of the center section just because most of it was FUBAR. I purchased a fuse package from Darrell and it has been nice to have all the parts I needed. As it turns out, it was most of them minus the three aft skins below the longerons. Still having fun!

I can't imagine being in a better EAA chapter for help with this project than the one you're in.

Yes, I am fortunate. I just ran to Van's yesterday afternoon. Needed some long -4 rivets, it is twenty minutes down the freeway from my house. In addition to all the RV'ers up here.

I made some progress in the last few days. I like that this thing is like a big model kit, like the little plastic models I made as a kid in the '70's...but larger
