Dimple the bottom skin

It’s time to dimple the bottom skin.  The instructions can be a little confusing here because, they are for both the tri-gear and the taildragger.  So you dimple or not in certain areas, depending on what you are building.  I am building the taildragger, so I have to make sure I don’t dimple in the wrong spot or otherwise mess up what would be a very expensive part to replace and ship.
