Throttle and subpanel mounting

I haven't been too good at keeping the posts here going - this one should've gone out in December, and there's a lot of other work we've done that I haven't posted yet.

I match-drilled the throttle quadrant to the tunnel cover and adjusted it to be flush against the center console:

I also attached the headphone cord clips to the center console:

We then primed and riveted the subpanel and nutplates for attaching the avionics:

The only part remaining for this section is actually riveting the subpanel and skin to the fuselage, which I'll do after the firewall penetrations are ready.

Time lapse:

Total upper forward fuselage rivets: 79
Total upper forward fuselage time: 55.1h
