Finally, everything attached and mounted on panel and behind panel, VP-X Pro with configuration transferred, Master Switch ON, Avionics Master ON. Hold breath and step back . . .

No smoke or sparks.

Looks nice, Jeff. What are the things on the far right of the panel? They look like circuit breakers, but you have a VPX.

Default They are CB's

They are Circuit Breakers. I ran out of VP-X circuits, so ran a number of items through CB's.

Default Big milestone - first power up

First up, A special thanks to my friend/mentor Art for his help, guidance and encouragement for this challenging part of the build.

We finished up the wiring of the Avionics harness and electrical system in the past week. Yesterday powered up the panel for the first time. Everything came on line, talked to each other and NO smoke ..... Woohoo!!

Time to call Steinair to finalize the panel details and get it cut and painted.

Now back to the Salt mines to pay for this affliction!

Cheers Jim

Another G3X panel. Waiting almost a year to add power...and everything seems to be working.

Nice panel Jeff! I like that the audio panel is relegated to the bottom of the stack, and overall very clean. Enjoy!

My RV14-A interior and Garmin G3X panel. I am adding a G5 above the ignition switch, the wiring harness is ready for the G5. Wool carpet and all fire certified leather seat and side panels. The inside firewall has dense sound and heat absorbing mat painted the same color as the interior. The optional Van's RV14 canopy with 97% UV block will help keep the cockpit cool in summer.
