April 16 Update - Baggage area

Before installing the baggage area floors, I decided to install conduits between fuselage sides and the tunnel: there is provision for snap bushings in this space for the fuse harness, but I'll be running extra wires plus the 1/4 tubing for pitot/AOA.  The conduit (made of 3/4" PEX as in the wings) will make it easier to route these into the tunnel, with less risk of chafing.  I mounted low to avoid any interference with rudder cables.

Installed both baggage floors - only step left is to rivet the floors to aft bulkheads.   Floors are strong as rock - nice to be able to sit back there on a stable surface for working inside fuselage.

The "End" of a long journey: The big day finally arrives!

Today Vic Syracuse came down and conducted the airworthiness inspection, we completed the paperwork, and he flew the first flight with me. ...
