Default Tahoe Flight

Did a quick flight to Lake Tahoe to show a friend around the KTVL airport. The restaurant on the airport was closed so we walked a few miles into town and had a outdoor, take-out only breakfast. It was a great day for flying with very little wind over the mountains and crisp, clear sky.

Sorry about the rotated photos - I can fix them in my EAA blog but I don't know how to fix them here.
Congrats on hanging the engine. i hope to be there soon. I was looking at your picture to see where the electrical feedthrus were coming thru the firewall but couldn't find them; then I notice your "old tech" instrument cluster. (cinder blocks)

No wires through the firewall yet. I've been running a bunch of light, pitot heat, stall, etc wires from where they are need to the panel area. I have a piece of scrap plywood across the nose, resting where the upper forward fuselage will be attached. The plywood was there to hold about 300 pounds of cinder blocks to keep the nose on the ground until the engine was attached.

In the plywood, I had one of my kids drill about 12 holes and label each one (light wires, fuel, gps, stall, etc) and route the wires through each labeled hole to keep everything generally organized for now. It was a fun task for a kid. Drills are the best tool at that age.
