Brief Description: Add side vents, prepare for cabin top
I finally decided to go ahead and build the side vents. At the worst, I can tighten the nut on the slide to lock them closed and the fit is as good as if I had riveted a panel in place. While I was at it, I added the rivets that were left out for fitting the door halves together and also riveted the right side panel in the baggage area. And I added a penetration with snap grommet at the top of the baggage bulkhead to pass the oxygen tubes and harnesses. I will need to install the cabin top and drill out the aft holes to #30 but after that and some dimpling/countersinking, I will be ready for the permanent install.
