1.9 hrs, 40 rivets
Finished riveting milspec fastener receptacles to firewall strips.

Drilled cowling holes to 15/32" and installed some of the fasteners. Install cowling and start adjusting receptacles. Leaving them unlocked for the time being.
Didn't lock or install all of the fasteners because I still have some cowling finishing work to do before flying. This means removing the fasteners from the cowling, which doesn't look too easy.

But for now, the cowling is very close to done. I will prime and rivet the lower cowl bracket this weekend, and then start on the panel!!!
