4.8 hrs, 10 rivets
Started in on final forward cabin installation work. Installing all the brake plumbing that had been temporarily fit. It could have been done long ago, but I'm glad I waited. The vent lines will be in the way when riveting the canopy deck and upper skin, but it can be gently bent out of the way.
Primed the parking brake bracket and riveted it to the firewall. Four of the rivets don't really count, since they were just holes in the firewall from the first iteration of the parking brake.

Install fuel vent and brake line external fittings, seal with proseal.
Fit brake lines to parking brake. Install and torque.

Start fitting fuel vent internal lines. Torqued left side.
