Default Smoke System in a 14

To All:
I am about 50% into my fuselage, just getting ready to rivet side skins on and I though I should think about my smoke system I bought from Smoke Systems Helper. So I got all the parts out and it looks pretty straight forward. I'll mount the Tank just behind the Pass. seat, and mount the pump to the back of the tank. My dilemma is getting the pressure hose forward and through the firewall. Right now I'm thinking of diving down through the baggage floor right next to the tank, and then forward one bay right....the same bay the rudder cables are in......then snake through the spars and somehow get to the center tunnel.....and then through the firewall right next to the fuel line penetration.

Just wondered what anybody else did.

Thanks, Jerry

Good time to add additional firewall pass through. I found that I need more pass through locations and had to install after the engine was hung. Would be much easier before.
