2.2.6 - Wing Attach Bolt Access Holes

I purchased a new, deep 2” hole saw for this and I’m glad I did because it made drilling through the fiberglass and foam core very easy.  Here’s the hole, elongated as per the instructions.

This process has to be completed on both sides of the wing.  After the holes are drilled, they need to be reinforced with a couple of layers of BID

The whitish spots come from sanding down the strips of BID.
