Default WTB: Clock

I want to start flying IFR in my RV-6 but I need a clock that I can mount in the dash. I need something inexpensive that will get the job done.

Unusual request these days. A clock is still officially required for IFR flight, but nearly everyone flying IFR has an EFIS or at least a EFB of some type in view, all of which contain clocks and satisfy the requirement. So just wondering why you're in need of a panel-mounted clock??

Lots of clocks out there, I went with a GT-50 because it is also a volt meter and g-meter. http://www.fdatasystems.com/gt-50
I have it connected to the battery so I can see the difference between battery voltage and bus voltage (in the EFIS, which also has a clock).

I do have a clock that satisfies the requirement, however its hidden in the EMS (Dynon D10). I would like on that I can quickly reference on the panel .

I have an analog clock that I never installed. Will sell at a low price. PM me if interested.

What transponder do you have? The timer function of the GTX3xx series is sufficient for IFR.

If you really want to go on the cheap, a $5 kitchen timer stuck to the panel with velcro works just fine.

Another option is to grab one of these, pop the magnets off the back, and "install" it on your panel with some sticky-backed hook and loop:
