Default Flying again...panel 99% complete

I’m happy to report that after 5+ months, the RV is back up and ready for more trip write-ups. Over this time, I’ve completed:

-Full panel swap to a Dynon 10” touch w all their fun add-ons, 2020 ADSB, GNS530W, GMA245, GTR200, AP, electric trim, Andair fuel valve, all new firewall forward hoses, FlyLED works kit, and a Catto 3 prop. Capped it off with an IFR check and an annual.

I have a few items to finish but the new plane is flying great! Catto makes one smooth and quiet prop.

Remaining items include:
-Installing a 7” SkyView (panel and harness cut and ready), oil cooler door, interior panels, cup holders.

Looking forward to Oshkosh to do some more shopping.

Thanks! I?m proud of it and other than the labels, Stein harness and a few misc items, I bought everything used over a 1 yr period to keep cost down.

Hiya Josh you probably are aware of this, but your cylinder #3 EGT is reading 300 degrees colder then the rest. Beautiful panel!

Thanks Bill. I had faulty #3 senders. I?ve since replaced them and things are much more in line.
