This week-end we added the parking brake control. It is located on the Left side (Pilot’s side) below the air vent. Simple pull / push operation with a push-button lock to prevent accidental operation. Easy to install and easy to use. Here is the control:

The cable goes to the Matco parking brake valve. The pilot simply steps on the brakes and pulls the knob out. Knob full in releases the brakes.  Here is the valve (looking down from the top):

We also finished installing the instrument panel frame and temporarily installed the panel sheets. Does this look cool or what:
