Primed GMU and brake reservoir stiffeners.
The .040 sheet is a little too thick for my budget bender!
Fabricated avionics shelf and riveted GSU stiffener to sub panel.
Reamed GMU stiffener to sub panel.
Match drilled angle to sub panel.
Fabricated and match drilled brake reservoir reinforcement plate.
Match drilled shelf angles to sub panel and cross brace.
Fabricated ECU suport angle gussets.
Mounted man busses to sub panel. Match drilled GMU stiffener to sub panel.
Cut angles to proper length for avionics shelf and ECU mount.
Installed GTP59 temperature probe to bottom left wing outboard of last access cover.
Trimmed gear bolt retainer clips to proper shape and installed.
Installed flap sensor molex and fabricated mount plate.
Fabricated GMU25 stiffener mount plate. Cut avionics shelf angle.
Fabricated extended forward baggage floor. I decided to use the lower compartment to mount the GPS20A and the GAD27. My plan is to mount the ECU’s and the GEA24 behind the panel so I can run the wires along the top skin behind the forward baggage door brace to the engine.
My mock up. Not much room in an RV8 but this should work. I wanted my ECU’s in a relatively cool area with wire routing as separated as possible to negate any failure effecting the other system. Only took me 3 days to figure out the placement. I will probably relocate the avionics ground bus to the lower bulkhead. I’m sure I will change it another twenty times.
