What about bonding a composite mounting bracket to the pillar?

If I were building an RV-10, that is the install method that I would use.

I'm really leaning towards leaving them out since I hate them in most other airplanes (personal preference, I know I'm different). But I figured I'd try to find that center mount picture if anyone else has done it.

Go with your instincts and leave them out. The new owner of my RV-10 installed them and I hate the way they ruin the otherwise superb visibility.

Invest in good sunglasses and fly on.
