1 hr
Mixed up a batch of proseal and took care of some critical path items.

Glued screens to the fuel vent exterior fittings.
Also sealed up a few areas at the bottom where the three fuselage skins join. There are some small gaps there where the curved 970 meets the aft fuselage.
And sealed around the steps. Now that that part is done, I can finish installing the insulation this weekend, and then that's one more thing that was in the way of riveting the baggage compartment floors.

The other big critical path item is priming and painting the flap actuator parts. I want to get that done before any riveting. But I messed up and didn't get any priming done when it was warm on Sunday. Now it's cold and wet again.

Monday 14 Dec.
.5 hrs.
Fabbed the fuel vent fittings. Cut the 45 degree angle and smoothed it all out.
