1.6 hrs
Torqued fuel pickup to the bulkhead fitting. Then picked the correct anti-rotation bracket. Drill and deburr the antirotation bracket.

These newer RV-9 kits no longer need the anti-rotation AD with safety wire and all, because they come with a clip that fits over the nut after its torqued down, and prevents any rotation. The bracket is riveted to the access cover.

Started on ailerons! Decided to wait till the weekend to seal up the tank. The proseal arrived today, but I'm in no hurry.
Deburr aileron attach brackets for both wings.
Cleco left brackets to wing.
