4.5 hrs, 13 rivets
Spent a few minutes each of the last few nights, but not worth logging. Did manage to complete the control column install, but a bit more torque checking to do.
Started today by dremeling a couple of snap bushings to allow both pitot and AOA lines to pass through in the center section.

Then prepared for forward cabin wiring adel clamps. Drilled holes in firewall/angles for bolts, installed nutplates on 892 bulkheads. Riveted rudder pedal reinforcement bracket to firewall angles. Prepared to rivet firewall recess, which will involve proseal.
