Shoudler strap doubler

Build hours: 178

The shoulder strap attach brackets on top of the C bulkhead were added. The skin was trimmed to allow the plates to align with the bulkhead. The plate and doubler were given a mild radius to lay flat across the C to D skin seam since we attached the C to D skin in two pieces. We used driven rivets in this area - because we like to drive rivets. (If you choose to drive the rivets, be sure to wear hearing protection when you stick your head in the fuselage to buck the rivets:)) The doubler plate was attached with flush rivets so that any future bracket would not be hitting rivet heads.
