Pitot tubes prep

Due to the enforced stop on the wing strut support brackets I started to cut the pitot tubes. I had these bent by a local boating supplies shop. They had a natty little pipe bending tool which had a curved boss that you wound in with a socket set and simple .. no kinks just a neat bend.. we went slightly over the 90 degrees as the natural spring brought it back.

Now just need to cut an access hole for the tubing to route through, then pass through ribs lightening holes to trailing edge root before fitting to frame and passing to the rear of the P1 panel.
