Task: Riveted right inboard top skin

Riveted right inboard top wing skin! Today was a big day with lots of rivets! We started in the middle of the center rib, riveted up to the top, then down to the bottom, then over left and right. The idea was to start at the center of the skin and work outwards to help pull the skin tightly as we riveted it. This idea seemed to work well as when the inboard skin was finished there was no oil canning.
