Third time is the charm!
After waiting a very very very long time for the final piece, assembly has been complete. Using the first distro plate, I was able to sand and prep all the brass tubing. Brass tubing without a belt sander is a lot of sanding to say the least. The pump to distro is a miracle, my original plan didn't work out,so I had to change my initial fitting layout to make it work. So close from not happening. She's just about ready for show time.
