Well, last week I took the remaining dregs of the Blue Mountain EFIS out of the plane, and finallized the EIS wiring. I’ve made an aluminum template for the new GRT Horizon HX system, as well as the 2 1/4″ backup gauges that I’m going to install (airspeed and altimeter for now – and YES I am getting more cautious since landing on that highway). It’s probably overkill, but I’ve never really liked the way the panel feels when I am putting it in or taking it out. So, this weekend, I decided to go ahead and plug the old hole, and move a few items (The Lightspeed display and ELT manual activation switch) out of the way in preparation. I’m told our GRT system will ship this week, so it’s not a moment too soon.
