HS Total: 49.0
Tonight I got the ribs dimpled and the right skin. The only excitement was when I was dimpling one of the last 5 holes and the skin slipped as I was coming down on the hammer of the C-Frame tool. The dimple ended up off center and damaged the edge of the hole. My first thought was, "Oh great. how many hours? And now I have to order a new skin." But then I thought about how I might repair it. I finished dimpling the holes and scratched my head for a few minutes.
