Got the seats mostly installed. All I have left on them is to upsize the holes to #30 and they are ready for deburring.

I also started working on the center cabin cover assembly. Only to realize that I don't have what I need because the parts come with the fuel injection boost pump... Idk why I thought it would come with the fuselage kit. Looks like I'll be placing an order soon.

Thanks man! I was wanting to paint some more things in there the black color but I was afraid that the high wear of some of the areas would make wear marks really stand out compared to the grey.

Well not a lot to show as I have mainly just been deburring stuff. Finding some more Akzo has been tough, UPS managed to completely trash a shipment from ACS and they are now out of stock. Ended up ordering some from Graco despite their ridiculous $250 minimum. Oh well, maybe having an alodine pen too will be useful.

Anyways, I have been taking care of all kinds of other tasks since I can't prime and paint. I'm waiting on a few shipments from different places to keep the ball rolling. In the meantime I installed the vent lines inside the cockpit. Turns out spending 4 years doing HVAC paid off since I used to bend tubing all the time. I may try and tighten up two of them bends but we will see, looks pretty good so far.

Here are some pics from my latest endeavors.

Jereme, Before you drill the holes for that stick bezel, space it up for the thickness of the boot or the holes for the angle portion will be offset.

Well these two pictures may not look like much but it took me about 5 hours to get this guy in. I had to drill some holes, do some countersinking and the likes. One more to go, hopefully I'll get it knocked out tomorrow.

Also, glad I am posting these pictures because now I see I missed two bolts.

Well after getting the left landing mount installed in significantly less time than the right it was time to move on. My primer shipment didn't make it by the weekend so I had to change plans. I decided to install the engine mount and start working on all the brake/rudder stuff. Things seemed to turn out good and it was pretty fun too!

Well I got the brake lines temporarily fitted. Now I need to sort out the finer details of how to tidy things up. I thought about braided lines for about 5 seconds but then I saw the cost of them and I know too many people that have had good experiences with the plastic so this is the route I'm taking.
