Continued with the controls. Found some shims that fitted perfectly for the elevator torque tube, 2x1.4 mm thickness.

Then another problem. The handle for the mixture crashes with the flap handle. I could put the mixture 2 inches fwd, but then it will get all too cramped. Have to put the mixture on lower panel.

The brake handle is another mysterious thing. According to the drawing, the bolts that holds the handle to the hydraulic pump is supposed to be fixed when the brakes holds the airplane at low RPM and the handle is position in the latch. But, how to apply brakes without a handle? So I made a new latch thing that can be adjusted in steps. A bit on the heavy duty side, but should do the job.
