Fuel valve, gascolator and pipework.

I now have a complete path for fuel from the left tank to the fuel pump. If you are surprised to see the gascolator in this picture I have explained my logic elsewhere.

I am always amazed how simple bending pipe is in theory, and difficult to get it just right, with no stress, in practice! This is my best shot.

The path for the RH tank pipe is more complicated, and I am debating if I want to use pipe, or hose. Hose has a weight penalty but I could get there in one which provides less opportunity for leaks.

In this picture the part lying on the centre of the floor is a doubler plate for a bent whip antenna, but none of that is yet installed.

The continuation of the piperwork from the fuselage wall, to the LH tank, is shown in this "Wings" entry of the blog.
