1st Flight after cooler swap

Had the opportunity on Friday to get into the air for a test of the new oil cooler. 

 Lots of traffic  and had to spend a lot of time holding short for takeoff, oil temps remained well within limits, Left bank CHT's got a little warmer than I would like but remained within limits. managed to get about .8 hr of flight and landed to check for potential oil leaks. Found one connection that needed tightening and will check it again on the next flight. Minimum loss of oil.

Arm Rest Interference

 

Is anyone having issues with the back of the armrest sides being approx 10mm higher the the tunnel top panel when installed.

 

This problem has been dogging me since joining the rear and front fuselage. All other parts and pieces seem to line up just fine.

 

 

Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.
