Right Aft Fuselage Side

Today I am continuing my work on the right aft fuselage side. I started with the vertical channels. After drilling and clecoing them place I moved on to the splice plates. These seem to be the most difficult. After a fair bit of fitting I was able to get the lower plates in place. I plan to use a .025 shim between the bottom of the plate and the lower longeron on the forward fuselage. The plates do not end up with the correct 22 inch spacing due to the fact that there is an allowance for the bottom skin under the aft longerons. I think the shim will work and will actually make the overlap of the forward fuselage bottom skin and the aft skin fit better.
