Tail Cone Completed

I had the tailcone mostly completed for several weeks, but had a few outstanding tasks, the hardest one was the 12 rivets that I could not complete by myself.  Today I took Scott Franklin and his kids Matt and Chris for a ride in N7124E.  Afterwards they came over to play.  While they were over Scott volunteered  to help me with the last rivets that I could not reach.  I backriveted most of them, but because of my static system mounts 3 could not be backriveted, so Scott got to run the rivet gun.
The tailcone is complete, still working on the trim system setup.  Made all of the brackets for the trim system last night, but need to prime and rivet them together.
