It was time to cut my lovely leading edge skin to make a hole for the trim tab cable that will be actuated from the cockpit. I measured carefully and made some preliminary cuts with a dremel tool. This is all I did for now. I thing the hole will have to be larger vertically but I'll wait until I can trial fit some things. The plywood splintered away a little bit at the edges. Oh well. Looking inside the hole though, it looks like I got a good seal with the varnish and the gluelines with the leading edge skin. Always a good thing.
