RV-6A fuselage skeleton in the fuselage jig, ready for skinning.  You can see the pink string pulled tight across the top (fuselage bottom) to mark the centerline from firewall to tail, ensuring a straight built fuselage:

Passenger side view of seat and baggage rib area:

Wider view of the main spar carry through bulkhead with false spar in place to hold spacing.  The pink centerline marking string is secured to centerline of the firewall on forward end and to centerline of rear-most tail bulkhead.  All centerline markings on bulkheads and firewall are referenced via plumb-bob to centerline that is marked on the fuselage jig itself:
