1.0 hrs
Fabbed and installed lower brake lines. At least I think they look OK. Need to trial fit the fairing to see if they need more adjustment. After that I can fill the system and check for leaks. I want to do that before I rivet the upper deck ribs in.

Sunday, 6/13
4.5 hrs
Installed the flap positioning system and the aft power jacks. Built wiring harnesses for both and installed those. Also did a final run of the Skyview network cable to the aft fuselage. Sometime during the week spent about 10 minutes hooking up power to test both the 12V power jacks and the FPS. All looks like it will work. Still need to tidy up the wiring a bit in the center console.

Saturday 6/12
No building. Drove to Pecan Plantation to see the RV fly in. 3 hrs one way in the car. Got there just after the last RV's left. Bummer. Consolation prize was a private golf cart tour of the houses and taxi ways with airpark access. What a place! Made the drive worthwhile.
