Smoke oil line

After getting back from California for our first half marathon (2:42:28), it was time to get back to work on the plane. I spent some time this evening thinking about how to route the smoke oil line from where the tank will be in the wing up to the firewall. I decided the best solution would be to use the last remaining Adel clamp mounting holes and run the line through the center tunnel area. I had been saving that position for the elevator trim cable, but I'll figure out another mount for that.

As another miscellaneous item, I decided to attach this brake line mounting bracket and fasten on a couple Adel clamps. The screw where the bracket mounts is actually 1/16 inch too short. I really need and AN509-8R9 screw. It's on the shopping list.
