I couldn't put the wing skins on until I finished working on the fuel tank, because I needed to do the final drilling on the tank mounting screws, and countersink the holes. The wing skins would have gotten in the way of the countersink cage.

I finally closed the right fuel tank on 28 August 99, and got all the prep work done for the wing skins. On 6 September 99, Rob Erdos (hopeful RV-6 builder) helped my rivet about 95% of the upper wing skins on the right wing. Terry, my wife, bucked the last 30 rivets today.

It looks great to have wing skins that aren't festooned with clecos :-)
