Wings: Pitot-static. Pitot hole made.

Here's a series of images capturing the fashioning of the pitot hole in the left bottom skin between ribs 8 and 9, butted up against 8.  A few pilot holes were drilled, followed by enlargement by the unibit, removal of skin with the nibbler, filing to get a good fit and final deburring with 400-grit.  An hour and fifteen minutes of after-dinner work.
