Cabin cover edge finishing

We took some time to finish the edges around the door where the cabin cover was attached to the fuselage - priming, filling, sanding, priming, and finally painting them - with pretty good results that blend in well with the top part:

With this, the next steps on this section are riveting the tailcon top forward skin (which I'm waiting to finish the ground plane extension to do), final-attaching the center cabin brace (which depends on having the panel riveted on, which in turn depends on completing the firewall penetrations), and then the transparencies (those really should be a separate section).

Time lapse:

Total cabin cover rivets: 160
Total cabin cover time: 157.7h
