Brake reservoir & canopy frame: 7.3 hours

Drilled instrument sub panel and installed Grove brake fluid reservoir.

 Finished  fabricating reservoir fluid line. Chose rigid over flex line due to the huge weight savings.

Removed excess epoxy from canopy bulkheads. Bonded frame plugs to forward and aft bulkheads.

Bagage door & brake system: 5.6 hours

Installed baggage door lift strut. 

Fabricated baggage door hinge pin and retainer. Baggage door complete. Will finish trim skin edges after cowling is installed.

I decided to go with a remote reservoir mounted on the instrument sub panel accessed through the baggage compartment. Fabricated brake line manifold bracket and spacers. Began fabricating brake reservoir line.
