3.5 hrs
As I type this, most people in America are about to eat Thanksgiving dinner. I'm thankful my family understands my obsession, and leaves me alone to work on the plane! But soon I'll go over to my sister's house.

Got almost all of the big FWF items installed. Just the gascolator/fuel pump line, fuel overflow, fuel pressure line, and oil breather to go.

Temporary fit of oil temp sender. Need a crush gasket.

Install firesleeve on oil lines.
Modify oil cooler to clear engine mount. Install fittings.

Mount left aft baffle. Install oil cooler.
Install oil cooler and fuel pump/carb lines. Hand tight.
