.5 hrs
Cold in the morning, but turned out to be a nice day in the afternoon.
Match drilled stiffeners to the right tank skins. But had to stop. All clecos in use, and need
about 50 to continue with the tank. Dang. Need to get the left wing riveted to free up some clecos.

Decided to spend time instead on a few misc. items that had accumulated. First, spent about 3 hours assembling some wren houses. Now maybe we can produce wrens faster than that cat can eat them. Also the old ones were a little too easy picking for the blue jays. The new ones are deeper, so the jays can't stick their heads far enough in.

Then spent about 2 hrs charge to misc assembling the wing cart. Using scrap, so it's a design challenge. Stopped because it got dark, but also used up the screws needed to continue.
