Whoa, that's WAY too many spring clecos. They should use wing clecos preferred, and temporary fasteners every so many holes....especially where the metal curves around structure. Once you shoot rivets around a curve the holes at the edge of the sheet could be off by the entire diameter of the hole, or more, if the sheet wasn't sucked down all the way to begin with. Really these sheets should be assembled one at a time or so before drilling up the next one. You have to tie the sheet down before you can proceed to the next one....otherwise the holes walk off the underlying structure. You lose your edge distance. They could have used a fresh outlook on this one....an outside set of eyes. Some engineering support. Besides, who can afford all those clecos? That project can be done with 1/4 the number of clecos they have there.
