3.2 hrs.
Match drill left elevator skin. I've read that it's a good idea to have pictures of yourself doing the work to meet the 51% rules. So the girls were put to work with the camera while I was doing a few tasks. They don't seem to stay interested nearly as long as I can!

That really is me doing the countersinking.

Wash spars/ribs in prep for priming.
