3 hrs, 16 rivets
Got ready to post, and the virus was back on the computer. Looks like a rootkit, which means bad news. Fortunately not affecting data files, but will have to clean the hard drive and install a new OS. Typing this on my work laptop (while watching the TdF).
Finished installing the forward deck and subpanel, had to remove and reinstall the engine mount one more time. Expect that to be the final time.
Not happy with the fireshield used for the mixture cable. Both screws are inaccesible behind the engine mount, so left one out and will rely on friction and RTV to hold them in place (and I have another idea about what to do).
