Taking a brake

Sometimes those titles can be a little misleading... I ran the interior brake lines as you can see in the middle two pictures below.

Sunday, after the work depicted in the pictures below, I knocked off a little early and went in to start working on the wiring diagram for the airplane.  Wow, another big learning curve.  Fortunately I can walk in the steps of people who have already blazed this path for the most part.  Nobody has exactly the setup I have but that's part of the fun of it all.

Im trying to take a photo of the fuel line I installed.  It seems a bit long but I will wait until the new fuel valve arrives before I send it back for a shorter version.  Speaking of the fuel valve, I got confirmation from Andair in the UK that the valve is suppose to ship today.

Here is a picture of the brake lines running from the weldment exit point to down the center of the fuselage and over to the manifold that is mounted on the firewall (see next picture).

...and here is the manifold.

For my final task of the day I went ahead and primed the inside of the control tubes.  Hard to see but if you look closely you will see the inside looks grayish.
