Brief Description:  Brakes & Instrument Panel

Plans:
1. Continue fuel tank installation:
Status: Not much to say today. I reconnected the keeper tabs on the tank and added the sump valve. I am still waiting for some clamps to come in. They are for the fill tube.

2. Install heel brakes:
Status: I modified brake pedals for go-carts to fit into the flooring. They are backed up on the bottom side with a tube and gusset. Hence when force is applied to the pedals it is transferred to the fuselage. I debated adding all the holes into the cross member at the landing gear station. Would it weaken it? I think the opposite is possible true. The rivets fill the holes and the additional metal strengthens it more. I think it is a net positive for strength.

3. Start instrument panel layout & construction:
Status: I cut out a duplicate panel for the instruments. I also applied a wood veneer to the surface. The idea is use the original cutout to create a structure to screw into. This will allow the panel to be installed as a unit.
