So far have assembled and match drilled firewall. (Including edge deburring).
1/23 have now also dimpled everything, and cleaned ready for priming.  Have not been able to prime for the last 10 days because it has either been too cold or raining.  Currently priming outside.  Might have to prime in the garage if I can't get some good weather.
1/31 Finally got some good weather last weekend.  Was able to prime and start riveting.  Was working on Forward ribs and skin while waiting.  They are all ready to go, so will have entire section finished shortly.
I ended up using rivets that were 1 size longer than called for in many places as the ones called for were not providing the head size.
