6 hrs, 6 rivets.
Baffle contruction. Finished aft and sides the past couple of days, started on the front ramps today. This involves iterative fitting of the ramps, sides, and the lower cowl. Time consuming. At least the plans describe the process well enough to figure out the right way to proceed.
Also deburred the spinner bulkheads.

Friday 9/24 2.2 hrs 11 rivets
Baffles. Fit the aft center brace. Also turned the engine over a few times. It pumps oil when you do this.... Then you get to clean up the mess.

Blast tube flanges arrived.

Thursday 9/23 1.4 hrs 14 rivets
