Brake Lines Part 2

I continued running the brake lines out to the left and right skins, just aft of the main gear channel. To help with installation, I temporarily attached the reinforcement plates that fit over the skin where the wing attaches, and then drilled 3/8” holes in the reinforcement plates for bulkhead connectors on both sides. Once I install the side skins, I’ll have to match-drill holes in the skins as well.

A tee fitting to split out to the left & right sides is located just after the main gear channel
A few bends on the tube that runs from the parking brake valve, through the main spar carry-thru, to the tee fitting
Right side run out to the skin through the lightening holes
