      What a tremendous accomplishment. Congratulations!! I can imagine all the fun that you will enjoy for years behind the stick of your hand-built aircraft.

            For fitting the G3X, did you just build an instrument panel with a slightly higher arc. I am currently planning my moves for this. Anything to watch out for?

              Yes-the panel is 3/4” taller- same bends at the bottom with short bent pieces around top to hold nutplates. Think it’s all .040 5052 aluminum. Adjust short angles with strait edge across to firerwall.

              Seems straight forward. Thanks.

            Dynon 10 inch fits the stock panel, Garmin doesn't unless you do something like Paul did.

                Thank you Paul. But it is Bob Barrows who made these planes. Our QB kits just make them easier to build and fly. Mark
