    I believe they are brass screws. I wouldn't have an issue installing it there. I would reference the Dodge STC bracket. Spar web is doing nothing out there. Piper had holes out there larger than that used with the Dodge spar tie down fittings.

    Or modify this mount to hold your part. http://www.fadodge.com/remote-compass-mounting-bracket/

    I agree with Steve, there are lots of holes in the spar web. Mostly, filled with rivets or bolts. Outboard wholes has less load factors. CC's in one of their Cubs removed large areas of the web to lighten the plane.

    This seems like a lot of work for a DG replacement, unless you need an IFR aircraft.

    And this has nut plates in the spar web and is mounted inboard of the strut attach fittings.

    In reply to replacing the Whiskey Compass, reading the requirements, it seems to me that an approved magnometer system will meet the requirements for a magnetic heading indicator.

    Also, a friend recently got his plane certified with the dynon glass panel and no whiskey compass.

    I haven't used my W compass is years, gps gives heading information.

    Yep, the compass just takes up space in my plane.
