I am not too sure about all the additional connections and linkages introduced by moving the long torque tube aft from its factory designed position. I am looking for alternatives and may just go with an independent latch on that right side corner of the canopy. What are your plans?

Thanks in advance - enjoy your Sunday!

Lars,
I hadn't really thought about doing anything differently than what the instructions show on Antisplat.com. Now you've got me thinking about it though!

Default Wingtip lenses with Flyleds

Trimmed and installed my wingtip lenses and had to set the flyleds in there to see how it looks. Very cool I say!!!!! My wiring/electrical items order from Stein is coming tomorrow so I can fire them up for the first time with 12 volts. Can't wait!! Need to mount the wings for the first time so trying to finish them up. Monday marked my 1 year anniversary working on the fuse.

David,
How did you attach the boards to the wingtip cutouts?

Scott,
Actually I haven't attached them yet. They're just laying in there. I am planning on small screws and nutplates. I figure 2 per board should do it. I could take the easy way out and use double sided tape but wanted them to be easily removable just in case.
