Can someone provide me with some details as to how long it takes to install winglets on a 737-700?

Aviation Partners Boeing had an ad on the back cover of either Airways or Aviation Week (can't recall which), and they mentioned retrofit time for the 737-300 as 3-5 days, IIRC. I presume the -700 will be in that same ballpark, and tend towards the lower figure as the learning curve kicks in after a few installations.
