Installed the newly painted rudder links. N207LT has working rudder pedals. Cool!

Then went to work on the brakes. Took on the right side, had to tighten up three fittings. Once they leak a bit of fluid, they get easier to turn. I could have sworn they couldn't be tightened anymore when I put them on the first time. But they could all take at least one full clockwise turn. After that, charged the brakes again, which I think got out the last of the air. We'll see tomorrow if that got the right side done. Tomorrow I'll take on the left side, at least one fitting leaks, and there are visible air bubbles.
