Getting ready to rivet the bottom skin to the left flap spar

Last night I went to bed thinking there was no way in hell to rivet this part. I saw on Bret Smiths website where he used some 1x4's and clamps to hold the top of the flap flat on the table top, which the instructions ask you to do. So I decided to get a really straight 2x4 and push it up under the skin, but on top of the ribs. Then I lightly clamped it down to the table on each end.
