    Finished the touch up paint on the fuselage tubing I wanted a darker gray. Started riveting nut plates on. Sure hope this is the last time the fuselage is bare bones. Excited I get to start installing permanent parts

    After you have some flight experience with it, I'll ask you how you like the 10.1 GRT. I'm still two years out from making a decision. It appears that you decided not to rely on remotely controlling the transponder and radio through the GRT display since you are including the Trig control heads.

    The numbers are the same or very close, but the maps and synthetic vision are larger. screen isn't as cluttered with all the info either.

    I forgot to go by the GRT booth at Osh this year. I'll have to remember to do that next year. With the 10.1, are the numbers actually bigger or is there just room for more information on the screen at the same time?

    I initially ordered the 7" but saw there was enough room for the 10.1 and changed my order. The larger screen is awesome, checked it out at Osh. With old eyes, I don't need glasses (-:

    David, I'm installing the GRT 10.1 Sport with synthetic vision option and their engine monitor, but will have the engine info talking to the Sport so to save panel space. Radios will be Trig TY92 and Trig TT22. Going to use breaker switches to save panel space also. The panel is 9" tall and the Sport needs 7" height for install, so it just fits. here's a pic of what i think the panel will look like.
    Frank, I've been looking at how the 7" GRT would fit. I've attached a layout that I did. This would use the basic engine monitoring option and no EIS.

    Would you mind sharing what equipment you ended up choosing for your panel? I saw that you are going with the GRT 10.1" display but not sure about the rest. Also, would you mind measuring the height of your LSA QB panel and sharing that dimension? From the plans, it looked to me like it was 10" but your layout makes me think it must me less than 10".

    Yeah, It's been a while since I've posted. Not a lot of progress since Oshkosh. But, with the grass not growing an dark coming early there's lots more time to build! Got the wings drilled to the fuselage, stringers drilled, fuel lines made up. Decided to use nut plates for floor attach, so that was done today. Also decided to paint the fuselage tubing a dark gray to match my selected paint, this meant taking everything off the fuse for prep an paint. did that today also, tomorrow will scuff and paint. If all goes well I will be working on the boot cowl, windows, door, next week. Made a short video of my mess (-:

    Looks like it's coming along nicely! I am really starting to strongly consider the LSA.

    Yeah, with my S7 I enjoyed the vis, heat wasn't too bad. But I'm used to that here in Texas (-:

    I purchased these for my skylight. They work great and fit perfectly between the stringers. https://www.amazon.com/kinder-Fluff-...ef_=ast_sto_dp
