Brief Description:  Fabricate brake lines down gear legs

Fabricated aluminum brake lines to attach beside the gear leg in gear leg recess and then bend as required to go over gear attach brackets and then down the aft side of leg to the wheel and then a large easy radius and connect to the brake cylinder on wheel. Easier said than done! I managed to get it done and then added plastic spiral wrap to keep leg from caffing the line and secured temp with string. Plans call to just use strapping tape to secure it but Ill look and see what others are doing. It will eventually be covered with the leg fairing but most likely after Ive been flying first.
Did the same procedure for the right side. One thing to note, I made sure to leave room for the access to the boltt head on leg attaching bolts for later. Simply used a socket to wrap the line around.
