Brake System Done!

Ford(2) and Ava(5)help celebrate the finishing of the brake system.
The brake line is covered by plastic tubing in several spots, then taped to the aft portion of the gear leg. The gear leg fairing and pants will be covering all of this up very soon.
*Update- I removed the tape and used Tie Wraps instead..

Here you can see the brake lines. It took some time and patience to get those hard lines bent and secured inside the gear boxes.... Update: I replaced the fat rubber handle(shown) with a small alum tube wrapped in heat shrink.

The view just behind the firewall. Panels will be covering this up when the forward baggage compartment is complete. The wire shoved in the Naca vent is for the electric fuel pump coming in the near future.
