Sewing is pretty easy, you know. It's a lot like airplane work. Trade the aluminum for fabric, the clecos for pins, and the rivets for thread.... and oh yeah, the rivet gun for a sewing machine.

I just bought some mesh pouches from SOE: https://www.originalsoegear.com/products/mesh-pocket. I got the big ones; 11" Wide x 6.5" Tall x 1.5" Deep, which is just about perfect for the sides of the fuse in the front, but I got two for the back too. They should be here this week. I plan to velcro them to the side walls and will post pix once I get them installed...and after I finish this dang ADS-B installation done...

Just got em and it looks like they will fit great!

Update: Installed one of them using 2" velcro industrial strength and they're not going anywhere...

Search EBay for mesh storage pouches, I have several in my 8, one of them has 4 elastic straps with hooks that I secured to the rear of the front seat. Some have dble sided tape on the plastic frame, Lots of storage I have now -.

Default These are great!

Yeah I have been flying them for a few days now and they are great! Hold a lot, close up tight and don't get in the way!
