The last of the rib stitching! More fuselage tapes, rib stiching and finishing patches

Tonight I got right to work gluing the lower longeron re-enforcing tapes. I followed it with a close out tape on the belly approx 11 inches forward of the tail post to close out all the belly and lower longeron tapes cleanly. I then cut out a re-enforcing patch for the rudder cable exits and the glued them on. I also installed belly finishing tape. After all that I rib stitched the fuselage ribs and then apply a rib tape on both sides of the ribs. MAJOR MILESTONE: LAST RIB STITCH WAS COMPLETED!!!
