23-07 side vents

Fairly easy page with the assembly of some small parts, mixture of squeezed & pulled rivets and a couple of basic nuts & bolts.  Funny how this is the only environmental control for the plane, and it went together in only an hour or so.

Note the ugly worm track on the skin :(  I’ve pretty much developed a habit of using a #30 reamer on every hole that gets an LP4-3 because most of them are too small to take the rivet with much work and occasional denting of a skin.  I slipped and didn’t get the reamer tip inside the hole and the worm track is the result.  Thank god I’m going to paint this bird!
