Drilled and riveted nutplates, Finished brackets - 5.0 Hrs.

Most of my time today was spent cleaning, prepping, and priming these parts. It feels good to have all these brackets done. Except for the one I ruined yesterday, of course. That's why you only see one of the larger brackets below, and a pair of everything else.

Moving right along, however, I drilled and riveted all the nutplates to the bulkheads. This feels like deja vu. It was a little over a year ago that I was doing this on the main wing spars. There's only 18 nutplates this time, though.

Here's a closeup of the nutplates, all riveted in place.
