1.4 hrs, 60 rivets
Started on prepping the lower cowl for the dreaded air intake fiberglass experiment. But the block of foam supplied by Van's isn't big enough. Time for a trip to Micheal's art and aircraft supply to buy a real block of foam.
Since I was thwarted on that, decided to rivet the airseal to the baffles. I'm thinking I may have to go back in with proseal, should have put on a layer to start with.
