Horizontal stab/rudder pedals 6 hours

The past few days I've worked on the horizontal stabilizer frame work. I also made my "final" touches on my rudder pedal assembly and mounted them the the fuselage with clecos. Took some adjustment to ensure that I don't press the brake accidentally with full rudder deflection, but have the brake right there if I need it. I ordered some material for my fuel tank and cockpit cables.
