Short Description:  More skybolt install

Today was all about riveting the flanges in place. I had to order some 2024T3 0.050” sheet to cut the double flanges out of which will hopefully be here this week. With the Showplanes cowl there is no need to use a shim when installing the flanges. I did notice that for some reason I did forget to seal the upper firewall section when I had originally riveted it. Not sure why I missed that but putting the flanges in gave me an opportunity to rectify that. This required me to fill a syringe with some sealant and inject it into the firewall flange intersection. This was a slooooow process and made up the bulk of the time I spent. I also had to remove and re-rivet a section of the flanges when I noticed that the original shim was still in place from the sealant on the lower section. Anyway, finally got them all in place sans the double flanges. I also started to locate the holes in the cowl itself.
