Default T-Shirt

Uh, Stein, I don't see a Stein-Air T-Shirt in that box. Could it be because you already have all his money?

As one of our other shirts says..."He's broke, we're happy"!

I think I would rather hand wire the entire panel, with Klick on breakers, that try to decipher that computer gobblegook in post 44

I'm glad you started this thread Brian. Following it really made me think long and hard on my original choice of dual Skyviews but this thread got me rethinking that decision.

Tonight I set out to complete the VP-X Pro harnesses. I started out at the hangar and it was too cold over there so I brought the stuff home.

Pretty basic, one wire at a time stuff.



Labeled both ends of the wire for future reference using thermal heat shrink tube labels. Most wires are just stubs that will get spliced back into the old parts of the harness left in the airplane. J1 and J2 are complete. The power plugs will get the avionics feeds added to them later.

Here are the fruits of my labor tonight:

Good work Brian. Quite the undertaking, I must say.

I cleaned and lubed my tailwheel today....is that kind of the same thing.
