|A picture of the steam driven instruments on the old panel.|
|A full picture of the left side, really just so we could see all the breakers and the layout.|
|Tach, oil press/temp, and fuel. The Tach was completely bonkers, when the engine was running it would wag back and forth around 200 RPM. This drove one of the CFIs that rode in the plane nuts.|
|Left side, with the new panel and steam driven instruments. New breakers (pushme/pullme type), new avionics master, and all new instruments (except for the airspeed indicator). I'm extremely pleased with the new setup. It's a standard T, with everything in a much more viewable location. Vacuum right in the middle so that you can't miss it.|
| And the new right side panel, also known as "The Christmas Tree". :-) New Tach, New Amp/Volt meter, New Oil Pressure/Temp gauge. Same old worthless Cessna fuel gauges though. Ya know, it's hard to believe that the FAA won't let you replace the piece of junk fuel gauges.|
The panel and instruments were done by Airway Flight Services, the FBO in Burlington. They did an excellent job. If you are looking for a similar modification to your plane, Matt's (the A&P) quite good at it. :-)
| And the new radio panel. From the top, |
|Waukegan installed headphone jacks for the rear passengers. Looks good, but now it makes me want to replace the side panels. Unfortunately the plane budget is shot for the next 3 years... :-)|
|New additions to the panel. EI Fuel Flow and Engine Analyzer.|
|I actually got to turn the "Master" on... Look at the pretty lights.|
Is it Christmas again already?
|Check it out, it's all painted Grey now.|
All we need now is that glare shield in and a few bolts tightened.
|Another paint shot!|
