Zenith 750 Cruzer I wrapped the steel fuel lines with plastic spiral wrap so they don't scratch everything.

Once I run the beacon wire and any other wires, I will wrap them in that corregated black split plastic (same stuff you see in your engine compartment in your car).

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I didn't like how the sharp edge of the baggage bottom piece wanted to cut into the fuel lines. Even though the lines are steel and they are wrapped in plastic, I don't want to ever have to think about them. So I made this curved piece and riveted it to the bottom floor so that the fuel lines have a nice smooth curved aluminum piece to turn on as they go up the channel towards the wing.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Hard to see here, but the curved aluminum keeps the lines away from the sharp floor.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I decided to add three seat positions to both of my seats. So here are the three sets of nutplates with flush rivets.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer You can see all 18 holes here for seat mounting. I taped the underside of the floor because the inside is almost ready for paint and I don't want to get paint under the seat pans as this would look sloppy.

All of these pieces are now ready to rivet. I'm just sort of holding off just to make sure I won't need back in there!

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I also added the access hole in the baggage floors-one on each side. I used flush rivets and will use the same inspection hole covers as used on the wings. So I'll have to order two more of them.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer This is where the access holes are located.
