Marvin,

I like that a lot! Planning on much the same equipment and hadn't considered putting the G5 next to the canopy jettison handle. Been trying to fit all of that, including the jettison, along with a panel mount audio panel but I don't think that's going to work. Going to have to go with a remote.

I primed everything, but only painted the areas I expect to not be covered by the interior.

I had to cut the jettison handle to rotate it vertical and bent it at the cut to allow for offsetting it slightly to the right. I would have preferred the autopilot to be at the top, but that was a problem with the canopy handle. In retrospect, it could have been, but I'm gonna fly it as is. I used the space behind the autopilot controller to make a diode protected essential bus for the SDSEFI components. The SDS controller is between the seats at the bottom of the picture.
