Brief Description:  Misc panel and an oops!

I blocked the panel up using wood wedges at the fuselage sides, and then located and drilled the tabs to support the panel at the side skins. After countersinking, I riveted the tabs and then bolted them to the panel before removing the wedges. Then I begand sorting out the cable runs under the panel and ran the P2, P3, P7, and P8 connectors through the support for the throttle quadrant before passing them over the rudder pedals and down to the tunnel. I also connected the COMM, GS, and VOR antenna to the G900X system. Next, I removed the seats for access and tipped the center console on it's side, to prepare to make the cable connections and runs in the tunnel. I determined the snap-plug size for the control stick cables and drilled the tunnel wall. Unfortunately, I forgot to check the other side and, as you can see, ruined the fuel line on the left side. Fortunately, this is a short run from the 90 degree fitting to the fuel selector, so it will be easy to replace. I was more careful on the other side and now both cables are in the tunnel and ready to be pinned to the CPC connectors matching P7 and P8.
