Fuselage progress.

Thanks to folks here, things coming along well. Dashboard mostly done, controls done, headliner going in now... Nice bonding experience...

Thanks!

Chief ash tray assembly

Need the tray and receiver. Willing to let go of the ugly Hobbs meter that replaced mine... Fixing the dash was a bear!

Parking brake attachment

How does the parking brake wire attach to the hand lever? My son took that apart...

I notice the service manual mentions an an515 something something "terminal". Heck if I can figure out what that is!

Thanks!
