Zenith 750 Cruzer These are the plates that mount to the side of the engine mount. I wanted to paint them white so a few days ago I primed them. My buddy is about to spray some white on his Velocity so he is going to spray these while he's at it. This saves me from buying white paint and getting all set up just to paint these few parts.
Zenith 750 Cruzer Since I am installing carpet, I decided to just close up my inspection windows. Oh well, it was a cool idea but it just doesn't look good with carpet. So I closed it up and will carpet over the whole area.

I used flush rivets so that you will never notice them once the carpet is installed.

Zenith 750 Cruzer I am installing the fuel lines but they are just temp secured for now until I make sure everything is where I want it to be. Then I will put fuel line sealant on the threads and tighten them up. The lines from AircraftSpecialty.com sure look great!

Zenith 750 Cruzer I was going to paint these spacers white but then I thought "screw it" that will just delay things. So I polished them instead.

Also note that you will need to drill out the holes in the Adel clamps to 1/4" for the AN4 bolts.

Zenith 750 Cruzer Zenith provides this aluminum fitting but for one, you should not use aluminum fittings in the firewall, and two, it has a barb for regular fuel tubing which I am not using.
Zenith 750 Cruzer So I purchased a steel fitting which is three times heavier, but it's steel and won't melt with an engine fire!
Zenith 750 Cruzer After drilling a hole in the firewall, I installed the fitting, and attached the hose finger tight until I know exactly how I will route it.
