Mighty fine work, Axel.
Sorry about the new radio not working. Maybe it is just something in how you checked it.

I called everyone around here and no one would work on my SL-30. They all said my only option is Garmin.

I am starting to run out of parts. I can almost count the number of parts required prior to the ?big move?. I am starting to do ?flare? type stuff. Some pics of progress over the last few weeks are shown below. I have also been doing functionality check on some the systems. All smoke is still remaining contained in the avionic boxes.

Wiring:
This last plugs allows me to disconect all my avionics and pull out the tray so I can have access during Maint functions.



Side panels:
These two plugs allow me to remove the control panel in case of Maint.



The small holes are for pockets. The large ones are for the copilot comm plugs.


Auto pilot:
The nice thing about a fastback, just a little more space. My wife came out to garage looking for me and freaked out.

Wilco. I am glad it helps you out. Others constantly give me motivation; the least I can do is pay it forward to those that are at an earlier stage on their build.

Here are a few more pics of the pockets and the cockpit lights installed. the lights can rotate as required. The straps are for the head set when ingressing or egressing the cockpit.

The pilot pockets were designed to hold charts and standard size paper. The co pilot ones were designed to hold one gossip magazine. There will be an additional pocket on the back of the pilot seat to hold an ipad.
