Brief Description:  Misc Brakes and Landing Gear

Cleaned up a couple of to-do items today. First, I added clear heat shrink tubing to the exterior brake lines where they will be running down through the lower skin of the wing once the wings are mounted to give the brake lines some additional protection.

Next, I permanently attached the brake line mounts to the main gear using 3M Scotch Mount Automobile molding tape. I applied the tape to the two tabs on each mount then attached it to the underside/inside of each main gear and clamped them into place to set.

Lastly, I torqued the bolt running through the nose gear strut that secures the towbar attach tube in place - something I had neglected to do when I first installed it last summer.
