Brief Description:  Attaching baffle material

- I took 1/8" off the metal baffle, per my measurements last night. Then deburred the edges.

- Trimmed the aluminum strap that will hold the baffle seal, and drilled pilot holes every 1.5" or so.

- Clamped the strap to the baffle and drilled the pilot holes through, using Clecos as I went (photo 1).

- Put the baffle seal in between the baffle and strap, and drilled through all 3. Cleco'd, then updrilled the whole assembly at once (photo 2).

- Took it apart and deburred everything.

- Riveted the 3 pieces together.

- Also added one of the support angles (photo 3). I was able to mark the hole locations while the baffle was still on the engine. But the 2nd angle is under the intake manifold, and I have not found a way to get any kind of marking device in there to mark the hole locations.
