Its been a while. Below are some pics of the progress. I made a bracket for my aux battery out of fiber glass, worked on more wiring and made some panels to cover the space under the instrument panel. I cut a hole on the panel so i can easily remove it and not have to worry about dealing with the fuel valve.

Forgot...... I also put some 3M Di-Noc on my panel. It looks nice. We will see how long it will last.

How are you handling the stick interference and also the brace that typically goes along the bottom of the panel? I am looking to do the same but these are challenges in extending the panel down in the center region there that I am scratching my head over, can you post more pictures of how you dealt with this?
