Section: 42
Hours: 4

I finished doing the inventory for the finish kit and then reviewed the chapter 42, titled Miscellanea, which shows how the various cockpit cover and finish pieces go together. I think I will paint all these parts at the same time as I do the interior. Now that I see what they cover I also know what I will have to mask off before painting.

All the pieces with blue wrapping are from the finish kit. They cover up the central wiring and cabling tunnel and the area under the seats that give access to the wing plumbing and wiring. All these parts are screwed on so they can be removed to access the wiring and plumbing later.

I could not figure out how to get the F-01439 seat ramp cover to fit. The bend in the seat ramp panel does not match up with the bend in the seat cover panels. I wrote to Van's tech support to ask if the part is correctly manufactured, but I won't hear back from them until sometime next Monday.
