6.5 hrs
Finished threading the baffle tension rods.

Drilled the airseal material to the baffles. Started trimming to allow a good cowling fit. Will use proseal and the wide flange pop rivets for final install.

Also prepped all of the blast tube flanges for installation. May not use all of them, but they'll be installed if needed. Used five: one for each mag, one for the alternator, one for the fuel pump, and one for the gascolator. I'm wondering how the alternator does in the rain.
