2.6 hrs, 49 rivets
Finished riveting seat and baggage floors.
Then returned to fitting the forward cabin plumbing. More fine tuning of the brake lines. They're almost ready to go.
Installed the fuel pump and fit valve/pump fuel line.

Started looking at how the gascolator and brake resavoir will fit on the firewall and were the firewall penetrations will be. Marked off all the holes. Don't know how I'm going to do the fuel line penetration.

Have to admit I'm uncomfortable with all of this plumbing. I expect it all to leak, and be a general PITA. Doing the best I can, and using a good flaring tool, but there's a lot of connections to go wrong.
