Ground block and fuel lines: 3.1 hours

Match drilled canopy micro switch to mount and latch block and primed switch mount.

Match drilled ground block and installed to instrument sub panel.

Began torquing fuel valve flare nuts. Space is severely limited so I had to undo 4 lines to make space for the wrench. The tight space and limited visibility make torquing almost impossible on the two outboard flare nuts. Nothing like working by reflection in a mirror! I was able to get them all torqued but dread ever having to remove the valve.


ANL bracket: 2.9 hours

Decided to fuse the right bus power wire requiring  fabrication of an ANL bracket. Will install on F-808 behind batteries. Space is limited but it will be aceessable if I ever need change the fuse. Torqued rigid fuel lines at boost pump and added second adel clamp for boost pump power wiring.

Aft fuselage wiring: 7.2 hours

Cut wires to length installed terminals for boost bumps, ignitions, and rear baggage light. Rear wiring complete for now. I have to paint the cockpit before I can run the wires to the forward section.

Torqued boost pump elbow fittings and installed terminal boots. Install boost pump ground wires to frame.


Fuel lines: 3.2 hours

Installed left and right fuel tank filters and lines.


Fuel lines: 5.3 hours

Drilled forward fuselage side skins for fuel feed and return lines. Deburred scuffed and primed area.

Added additional microfill to rudder horn. 


Air vents & brake lines: 4.0 hours

Went ahead and installed adel clamps to gear tower vent and brake lines. Very tight space so I burned a lot of time to get this done. I also torqued flare nuts in the towers.

Installed and prosealed  JDAIR vents to gear leg covers.


Vent lines: 3.0 hoursĀ 

Installed AN to quick connectors for nylon vent line transition.
