7 hrs, 32 rivets
Rivet slider reinforcing ribs and air vent braces to fuselage. Those were a couple of stray riveting tasks that have been hanging around for a while.

Final design of Skyview and switch layout. Had to move the switches down a little to account for the taller 10" Skyview. The first layout was done for a 7" unit.

Cut panel for Skyview installation. Set the corners with a #40 drill and the inside corner of a steel square. Then cut out most of the inside with a cutoff wheel. The final trim cut was made with an edge trimming bit with the Dremel, using a router base. Worked like a charm, just little bit of light filing to clean up the corners and the Skyviews fit perfectly.
