For now I will just have photos with captions, but will add text later. If you have any questions, just drop me an e-mail.

This is a photo of the pilots floor brace (now taken out). By pure luck I found that this was only installed using pull rivets (and only two). Now I'm looking harder at everything on the plane.
Pilot rudder pedals. Pilot rudder pedals with master cylinders.
Only problem I ran into here is that I reamed (I do that with all AN attach points) them straight, but the pedals don't sit straight. Thus the washers, nuts and bolts don't sit straight. Not a big deal, just a little re-reaming, and then I won't over tighten the nuts. No none of it is painted, and all will be removed for painting.
Flap actuator installation.
Flap actuator in place with top hat. You can see light under the top hat, so in the second photo I added some 032 shims.
Shims are now under, but flap actuator is removed for other work.
Static tube running forward. Static tubes hooked up to ports. This had to be the worst job I had to do yet. My elbows hurt for two days trying to get this all done in such a tight area.
Pilot seat with seat belt holes. Hinge and bottom angle done. Pilot's seat and passenger seat.
Playing with the horizontal stab. Elevator with trim tab, and some colour schemes.
Stab and elevator. Vertical stab.
Wing tips with lights.
Tail light Strobe supply on wing rib.
Throttle quadrant, and fake instrument panel. Starboard wing complete.
