Got about an hour of work in. The ("Z") angle on the forward fuselage skin on the passenger side got measured, trimmed and drilled into place.

Once the initial rear hole is drilled into place and the position where it crosses the plate is determined, it is much easier to predrill the required holes into the channel, then drill into the fuselage skin.

The Rotax was finally uncrated ( mostly ). The shipping crate was secured in an unusual manner and required bending of metal to open. A quick inspection did not reveal anything missing or damaged.
