Task: Finished the seat backs and worked on the forward deck

Tonight I had my dads help driving the last few rivets in the seat backs and forward deck. The hand squeezer couldn't reach the hinge on the upper portion of the seat backs. We drive those rivets along with the F-697 hat section of the forward deck. As for now, that is all we can do on the forward deck. We are going to spend this weekend finishing various small tasks on the fuselage and prepare some parts to be painted with the Sherwin Williams JetFlex interior paint. Once we are happy with the results, we will shoot many of the parts that have been completed over the last few months, along with the interior of the cabin.

Tonight we drove the 2 vertical lines of rivets in the middle of the sub-panel.
