I need some mounting or arrangement suggestion, ie mounting locations and/or brackets I can make. So far I have only had to cut a single hole into my subpanel for my GTN 650. Decided to jump on in and go ahead and get those trays and the wiring harness into the plane.
So here's what I have shown in the picture with a bit of painters tape holding everything in an approximate place I think would accommodate space and with my Stein harness.
Not sure if the picture shows it but I cut a number of scrap angle pieces that I have the VPX and GTR 20 sitting on. This is just to have a place to put things on, however I can easily make these into some type of permanent mounting solution.
- For the VPX, my thought is to use the existing brackets and bolt one to the subpanel flange and make a little extension piece to cover the gap aft to panel flange. Locate it somewhere in the middle that's easy to get to and for maintenance I can remove the center console cover and get to it fairly easy without having to take out a PFD or MFD.
- The GTR 20 I would use those angels and mount then on the panel/subpanel flange flat side up. Then I can just bolt the GTR 20 in... or do it opposite and bolt the GTR 20 up onto the 'rails'.
- I would mount the IBBS a bit higher than it's shown in the picture, but this location should be able to accommodate the harness lead. Does it make more sense to but this on the back side of the subpanel?
- The GEA24/29 need to be close because of the harness. Thought about putting the 29 behind the subpanel but don't want to strain the wiring harness. It's still an option though.
- GD40 will work out fine where I have it. Easiest of all to install it looks like.
- GTX45R you can barely see, I'll just figure out a way with angles and mount it similar to how I'm mounting the GTR 20.
- Fuse box can go on the far left, or the far right. Just want to be able to get to it from underneath. Do not want to take out avionics to get to this thing.
- The grounding tab would work nice somewhere in the middle like where I have it.
