Matt and Dad came to the hanger again yesterday and we installed the hose from the naca inlet to the eyeball vents. We also installed all the seatbelts. Today the bus manager arrived and it was installed. My fuel pump relay now works and my backup fuel pump operates as it should.
CHERYL was a tremendous help tonight. We installed the oil breather line using a part custom made by one of the DPW guys. CHERYL installed the front carpeting!
Today Matt assisted torquing down the pop bolts. They were safety wired and the nose cone installed.
We then worked on the interior. It’s beautiful, but a couple of fitment issues that I’m sure will get straightened out…
Nick installed my glare shield padding and Cheryl helped pull wires for the wingtip LEDs. She also fit the rubber baffle material to connect the air box to cowling. Great help!
Installed the trottle and prop linkage at the quadrant.
Installed the flap switch, OAT probe, ran battery monitor wires and interior vents. Thanks for the help Matt!
Cut down the control stick to install the grips. I went with the Tosten CS8 grips that will control the trim, push to talk, autopilot disconnect, transponder ident, and radio flip flop.
