Default Boom mounted Pitot

Has anyone got a plan on how to mount a Dynon boom AOA/Pitot on a wooden lower wing. I am planning on putting one on the left lower wing of my Skybolt, but I note that there is no mounting hardware or design from Dynon.

Anyone with a picture?

Ok perhaps boom mounted is too difficult. How else are you putting your pitotís in? Any pictures of a pitot mounted in a lower Skybolt wing?

Cameron.
This is how I installed the Steen pitot tube in the wing.

The wing was on the bench (in the jig racks)
I used the short (center) leading edge ply and rested this in place with one edge on the spot where I wanted the manifold.
Using a right angle, I could identify where the leading edge center point would be on the spar.

Perfect. Thanks Eric. Did the manifold come with the pitot or did you machine it?
