    I finally finished trimming and fitting the last of the interior panels and tightened up all the fuel line connections and clamps up to the fuel valve. I still need some fittings to finish up the drains under the pilot seat. I made both heal plates that will go over the carpet. I made up a battery box and brake reservoir bracket out of aluminum. Got the beacon flasher box and ELT bracket install under the pilot seat and drilled the holes in the floor for the wiring to pass through. Next was setting the instrument panel in place and installing the mix, throttle, primer, carb heat, cabin heat control cables, and the key switch to hold the instrument panel in place.

    I installed the switches and circuit breakers on the panel. I painted the battery box and mount for ELT antenna, once dried I installed them on the fuselage. Next I mounted the grounding block behind the panel and clamped all the control cables out of the way of the control column and clamped them to the firewall. I made 3 angle braces to keep the right distance between the firewall and the instrument panel. I started by wiring the key switch and the starter and battery masters, all ends of wires were labeled and then I put clear heat shrink over the labels. Then I started at one switch and ran power and then to what it was controlling along with grounds as needed. I also mounted the bracket for encoder and shunt. Finished wiring all main switches and power to everything. Next I will start on radio and intercom, encoder, ADSB, and transponder wiring.

    Thank you, when I first started building airplanes I would search constantly for building logs and photos to figure out certain things and new ideas, so I figured I would post mine for people to use. I continued with wiring by wiring up the headset and mic jacks. I also wired up molex connectors for the dome lights, map lights and the beacon strobe box. Both PTT on control yokes were also wired up. I made and installed the oil pressure line and primer lines from the instrument panel to the firewall. I started wiring the intercom to radio connections.
