9 hrs, 7 rivets
Skipped any other form of actual life this weekend and worked on the project. Didn't seem like 9 hrs.
Finished match drilling all the forward ramps and attach clips. That marks the end of the preliminary baffle construction phase. Now it needs to be finished up.
Clecoed the upper cowl inlet ramps in place and trimmed the baffles to allow a rough fit.

Started marking the left side baffles for the final trim. Deciding to try the airseal fabric rather than make a plenum top. That decision can be revisited if cooling turns out to be an issue.

Will need to glass the inlet ramps in place and that's going to eat up a couple of evenings.
