Thank you, Brian!
Keep plugging away as my mother used to say

I have less time lately and struggle to get back in town to work on it but I always put the time into it, even if only for minutes...
Gear on then start the wings first install

Looks way better then it did on your trailer. What did you do with the bags of sand from Home Depot?

I just found pictures of when you got the plane. Wow. What a project. Nice work and it looks great.

Braided Brake Lines
 
I really like the braided brake lines. I'm going to change my existing tube brakes lines to braided.

Looks fantastic, keep up the good work.

I understand. I started with AL tubing and went to braided. I have bent tubing for the balance of my lines but in this instance, I thought it was indicated.
Easy to run, more durable (anecdotal), and clean-looking.

Good Luck!

Not a lot of explanation but I do have a bit of panel wiring started

I'm not an expert but with the schematic graciously provided by John Bright, it becomes infinitely easier. Thank you again John!

Thanks, Jereme! Trying to keep going as much as I can these days. Taking it slow here as I don't want to let the smoke out down the road.

I might be ringing you later this next month for advise!

Not sure about that link. Maybe it is archived?
