Fairings and firewall: 4.1 hours

Installed lower gear fairing nutplates. These will close the gap at the aft side. They are installed on the inside so that the nutplate is mostly hidden. Found this idea on another builders forum, works well.

Sanded inside of lower gear and lower empennage fairings.

Microed rivet heads and other areas needing evening out.

Began drilling firewall for pass throughs. I need a larger unibit to expand out to 1.125 inch.
