Zenith 750 Cruzer I mounted my parking brake set-up.

Zenith 750 Cruzer Here is where I located the parking brake. Now that it's mounted I don't like where it's at. The location is good, but I wish I mounted it about 1/2" higher.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Now I'll cut the push/pull cable to the correct size.

I've also decided to use one piece flexible braided fuel line. To use solid line, each requires two pieces, which total 8 lines with connectors. That's 8 potential future leaks.

If I use the braided line, I can have one line (four total) run from the fuel selector all the way up to the wing connection point. The steel lines are more expensive, but I think a better system for what I want.

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Throttle is mounted.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Here the throttle, flaps switch, and trim switch and indicator are mounted.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer The switches were laid out specifically so I can have my hand on the throttle, and use my pointer finger to work the trim switch, and my thumb to work the flaps.

I was going to drill the holes for the nav, strobe, beacon, and recog light but I want them centered under the EFIS and since I don't have the EFIS yet, I'm not sure of it's exact location. So I will drill them later.
