Dimpling HS skins

November 5-6: I taped off the hole locations that remain open, and then dimpled the HS skins. Edge holes were done with the pneumatic squeezer, and the remainder with the c-frame and a hammer.

I clamped the HS cradles to the workbench and inserted the dimpled skins. The cradles were fabricated with plywood from the crate that the kit shipped in and some 2x2s from Lowes.

Then I clecoed the HS-905 nose ribs into place (two on each side), riveting will wait until tomorrow.
