I'm working - slowly - on a detailed model of the 72D.  I rely on photos from the web for details and have been collecting these for a few years but there are few period pictures of cockpits and of the wiring/plumbing in general.


I'm particularly interested in the wiring/plumbing and would really appreciate any information (photos?) of

1) the floor pan of a 72 after one of the two fire extinguishers was moved 'onboard', with the arrangement of fuel lines.

2) the area behind the seat/drivers head with fuel pump

3) instrument panel wiring


In addition, I'm curious about how these fire extinguishers operated.  Not the switching, but the nozzle end.  Was there simply a tube with a nozzle that sprayed foam into the footbox and/or cockpit?


Thank you
