Brief Description:  Air vent, misc

1. Traced an outline of air inlet on left skin inside and out. Drilled 4 #40 holes in the nacelle and then held it in place to mark hole location on skin. Drilled the skin and dimpled for flush head rivits. Machine countersunk the nacelle. Cut 4 small pieces of aluminum and drilled to use as reinforcements for the rivits. I will use proseal as the adheisive to attach and then rivit in place after I prep the air vent in wing so I can seal them both at same time.

2. Removed the fwd upper skin and the windscreen support. I never deburred the windscren support after drilling so I did that. I then flattened the 2 side edges that were dimpled so that I could bend the edges slightly. This should have been done prior to dimpleing but I got carried away. I wont redimple until Im sure the edges lay snug against the fuse side skins when Im ready to rivit it on much later.

Next session I plan to bend the 2 brake lines and posiibly run the tail light wire and secure. Might even start rivitting on the turtle deck
