Brief Description:  Inspection Panel, Cowl & Cockpit Lamp

Plans:
1. Install Inspection Panel.
Status: The inspection panel that sits mid fuselage was installed. This idea follows Sam Buchanan's build. My panel is a bit bigger than his. I felt that a bigger panel would provide the ability to access the lower equipment tray's back side or make some repairs if needed..
2. Install cockpit lamp.
Status: I decided to locate an automobile dome light into the lower foot well. This area is fairly dark during inspections without a source of external light.
3. Paint and trim cowl.
Status: Painted the cowl white. I also started to glue the neoprene trim in place. The first attempt using epoxy failed. I am trying shoe goo next. If that doesn't work I have some PVC raft repair glue to try. Failing everything I will rivet it in place.

Also of note today: I broke out the tubing for building the wings. It looks like I have all the tubes but a couple of eye-bolts could not be located. I'm not sure at the moment if they are lost or never supplied.
