2 hrs, 22 rivets
Attached the right elevator tip. Figured out I have the two on the wrong side, after riveting the left tip to the right side. Doesn't appear to make much difference.
Drilled a couple more holes in the seat ribs to improve wire routing. A few were rubbing on the pushrods just a little, and moved them to gain more clearance. Using zip ties to anchor all the wires to prevent chafing.

Got in about 3 hrs yesterday (Monday) after getting back from Dallas, fitting and installing the top baggage bulkhead and the thousand screws that hold it on. Then got back to adjuststing the ailerons, and finishing the left side control rod end install with the little tiny washers. Applied torque seal. Figured out exactly what to do with the right side aileron bell crank, just needs an adel clamp and safety wire.

Snuck in Sunday before driving to Dallas putting on the canopy handles. 8 rivets for that.
