2.5 hrs
Assembled the nose wheel and the fork assembly. I'm using the aftermarket Grove magnesium wheel. It takes a very slight deviation from the standard build, except for the axle torque procedure which is different. But I havent't torqued it all to final specs. That'll wait until I install the gear.

Layed out the pilot holes for mounting the forward canopy frame.

Used this gauge to see how close the bolts would be to the longeron.
