1.6 hrs
Trim flap assembly side cover for bolt clearance.
Finish cutting out sound proofing mat. Peel and apply to baggage bulkhead.

I realized that this might be a safety hazard. If this stuff comes loose, it will be flopping around in the back with a high probability of being in contact with the elevator pushrod and bellcrank. I don't think that would be catastrophic, since I don't think it can jam anything, but I need to keep a close eye on it. It it even looks like it's going to peel in the heat, off it comes.

A growing backlog of stuff needs priming and painting. But too cold and humid, with no relief in sight on the forecast.
Went to Harbor Freight today at lunch and bought a small sheet metal bending brake, and to West Marine to buy vinyl cable sheath for the rudder cable.
