Rear seat floors and mid seat rails installed

Along with installing the baggage floors, I also installed the rear seat floors. I started by painting the seat belt attachment points, which I hadn't before for some reason:

Then protecting the conduit hole so the conduits don't get damaged by the edges:

And finally, actually riveting the floors, which was kind of annoying to do without getting inside the plane (which I'm avoiding since it's still on sawhorses):

The mid seat rail support doesn't really have attachment instructions (an omission in the manual), but since this section calls for installing the seat floors over them, I also installed them at this time - they were a royal pain to get bolted down and torqued, and required 3 hands and a lot of contortionism:

I'm starting to look at my interior options so I can work on the other cover panels.

Time lapse: 

Total access cover and floor panel rivets: 516
Total access cover and floor panel time: 31.7h
