1.6 hrs tonight, 6 rivets
1.8 hrs last night
Last night finished drilling and deburring the left aft corner baffle parts. Riveted the stiffener on, but will leave everything else loose for now.

Tonight started on the second page, the right aft corner. Got all the small part deburring and match drilled everything.

Ordered ignition wire grommets from AC Spruce, along with more West Systems epoxy. The grommets did not come with my engine, since it wasn't new.

It's been raining every day. Very unusual. I don't want to work on fiberglass while sealed up in the garage. Need to sand the cowling another time, and then do the milspec fasteners before I disassemble the top forward skin. That has to be done before I can start on the panel.

Signed up for a Condition Inspection class at Lancaster Airport.
