The brake lines for the tail dragger version of the RV-14 go though the firewall to reach the gear legs. The firewall as provided does not have the required holes so I laid them out and drilled them using a step drill. The step drill I had been using up till now would not cut a large enough hole so I made a trip to Harbor Freight and bought a set of larger step drill bits for the job.
I applied a layer of ProSeal under the through hole flanges and riveted them in place.
The rest of the day was spent assembling the master cylinders to the break pedals. I also drilled holes in the support blocks and cut the center blocks in half. Everything is ready for installation in the airplane tomorrow.
