Brief Description:  Actuator cover and brake line routing

I can't describe how awesome it feel to stand back and see not only a painted nose interior, but the hardware getting installed. I feel like I'll be flying in a week! I picked up some cable routing clips from Lowes in 1/4" size and mounted them with #6 sheet metal screws to the side walls. This install looks great and is very functional.
Ok so here's the deal, I've spent only a little time around long ez aircraft in the last 2 years but I've already seen 2 that have had mouse droppings inside the interior. HOLY CRAP! And that was at a fly in! Who gets in there plane with poop everywhere and doesn't clean it before flying???!!!! Oh and Not to mention that mice CHEW WIRES! Anyways, I made a committment to seal up my airplane and NOT let that happen which means assembling a cover for the nose gear actuator and installing gear doors. More on those later.
I used 3/8" foam and wrapped it in duct tape and sprayed it with silicone release agent. The cover will not be structural in any way so it only got 1 ply BID on the sides and 2 Plies BID on top, wrapped in peel ply. I may end up adding 1 more ply that will give the cover a "lip" for installation however I haven't decided how it will attach quite yet. Anyways, the Cover will also conceal the backup 12V Battery for the nose gear.
