Panel install underway.. Interior is in!

We received the panel from Stein last week, the install is underway now.  Also our seats are delivered and installed.  Bennett Akin, our airport neighbor made these custom leather seats for us.  To follow are arm rest pads and stick boots.

The panel... coming soon

Things are starting to fall into place.  This week Stein Air shipped us the panel, it should arrive this Friday (10/14/16).  This and the seats are the last two items we need to get this bird in the air.  

Some specs on the panel:

The goal was keeping it simple, but IFR legal as well:
Single 10' Dynon Skyview 
Garmin GTN 650
Dynon autopilot, radio, and intercom
Chart box on the right side
Aux input, USB charging etc..

I`m probably leaving some things off, but that is the basic layout.

All boxed up on the way to North Georgia!!

I must say Stein has been incredibly responsive and professional.  We went back and forth a lot over the build of the panel and their experience was really helpful in deciding what to use for our panel.  I am excited to see this thing in person and install it in the airplane.

I`m trying to keep my excitement in check...90% there, 90% to go... But it feels like were close to getting this thing in the air!

Stay tuned...
