Riveting: 6.6 hours

Tweaked aft fuselage wire positions, fabricated and installed transponder wire harness support. 

Cut ELT coax to length and installed connector. 

Riveted rudder cable exit fairings to fuselage. 

Began riveting upper aft skin to bulkheads.

ELT antenna installed aft of F-808. I did not want an external mount but this is a 406 unit and I wanted to be in compliance with TSO requirements. Plus the antenna is too long to place under empennage fairing. Ugly and more drag, oh well.
