We spent about two hours working on the passenger side fuselage skin. A good portion of that time was spent determining which of the pre-drilled hole lines the "L" angle was to be attached to. I found that placing a piece of wood between the "L" angle and table helped keep the pieces lined up.

Besides that, the sheer number of holes for the longerons takes a while to drill.

It turns out that determining if a skin is in the radius of an "L" angle or longeron is hard. To help keep the skin out of the radius of the longeron I used a red Sharpie to draw a line down the radius of the longeron. This visually made the process much easier.
