4 hrs, 159 rivets
Took the Monday off to provide a short work week for the first week back at the grind. Of course I used it to work on the kit. Well, got in a run and a swim, too.

Fit SafeAir fittings to pitot tube. Was wondering how I was going to attach the plumbing, lost sleep over it and came up with way to do it. Then I got out the SafeAir kit, and once again it had all the parts needed to do it right.

Install brackets to hold adel clamps for landing light wiring. Just simple .063 angle pop riveted to the spar, with holes drilled to allow installation of clamps at the correct angle. This will provide better compliance with AC 43.13.

Finished riveting left inboard bottom wing skin.
