Zenith Cruzer I made two brackets on each wing that rivet to the trailing edge. The furthest hole from the spar is for the fuel line. Next are the two holes for the pitot/static lines, and the small hole is for the nav/strobe wire.

These brackets will hold them all as a nice bundle inside the trailing edge.

Zenith Cruzer Here's another little bracket to hold the pitot/static lines from flopping around in the wing.
   
Zenith Cruzer The pitot lines will pass from in front of the spar, through the huge hole, then through the bracket, and then out the rear spar and towards the fuselage.
   
Zenith Cruzer This is the sticky-backed cork that the fuel tanks sit on.

Since the bottom of the fuel tank is shaped like a rocking-chair, there are a few places where I had to double or triple the layers of cork. Here you can see a section of cork on top of the another. My tanks now sit in the wing with no rocking or moving.

Zenith Cruzer Now I need to build the fuel lines and the fuel return lines.
   
Zenith Cruzer We added this workbench extension so that I can now work on both wings at the same time. Once the fuel lines and pitot/static lines are installed, I can rivet the top skins.

After that, I'll work on the wing tips and root ends.
