Starting backriveting the bottom skin on the right flap

Apparently you need more than 3 days to let Proseal set up when it's cold outside. When I took all of the clecos out, the trailing edge starting to warp a little, but it didn't come apart. I weighted it down with a 2x4 and some bricks and everything layed flat nicely while backriveted the rivets half-way down. Then I finished everything off on the flip side with the mushroom rivet set on the rivet gun.
