I finished shaping and attaching the forward bottom skin. I dimpled and installed flush rivets along the forward edge so that the cowling will lay across it smoothly. The sides are attached in this manner as well because the side skins overlap in this area. The only difference is that I dimpled the bottom skin and countersunk the longeron underneath.

I'll begin to install the wheels and brakes so I can then turn the fuselage over.
