Default Mounting Park Valve in RV-7

I'm trying to make a decision on how to mount the park brake and I noticed on a tread that someone suggested mount it on the firewall where the fittings protrude through the firewall. I thought what a great idea.Anyone have thoughts and photo's

I have a PVPV-D park valve and was thinking of mounting it where the fittings come through the firewall which would mean using different fittings can anyone help?

Mick-- you can move it up alittle from the tri gear bracket, and fab up 2 rigid tubes to connect the the bulkhead fittings. Will also shorten up the 2 pressure out hoses accordingly.
Most of the RV7/9 installs we've been a part of put it on the firewall like the the RV10 location.

I mounted my parking brake valve in the cockpit on the firewall forward of the pilot’s left rudder pedal.
