1.1 hrs
Made all the 637 seat back hinges. There's not much extra material to work with, so careful
layout is needed.
Placed a Van's order on Saturday, for the new 6111s. Also got:
3 feet of 1.5 inch hinge material. Plan to use this for baggage tie down points.
An AHRS mount kit. Not sure if I can use this. The pitch servo is less than a foot from
where the AHRS will be.
And a square foot of .063 2024 alclad. It's just handy to have some extra material.
Aileron trim kit. This needs to get installed soon.

Need to rivet the steps in. First I need to finish priming them. Which means some paint decisions are looming.

Need to order a wiring kit. The wings will need finishing soon because they will need to be fit for the first time.
