Thanks,

Rustoleum Hard Hat, "Dark Machine Grey" in the rattle can. Not bullet-proof, but it's holding up well and I still like the color. I used Light Machine Grey in the baggage compartments. I'd do it again the same way.

I have my pencil doodlings of the scheme on my desk, but haven't scanned them in yet. It's on my list. Stay tuned!

Hey,

I am on my way to Sydney, Melbourne and points west if time permits. I am building an RV 8 and would love to hook up with some one down under who is doing the same or a Vans design.
If any one interested in meeting us-wife - please send info.
Thanks,
Ed Clegg

Here's a shot of my pretty basic VFR panel. Lots of real estate left for future add-ons.



Note that everything on the panel is connected to the rest of the electrical system by just wires. So I put in a big loop of extra wire so the whole panel can be dropped and rotated forward. This way I can get to the back side of everything on the panel and everything on the bulkhead behind it (without laying on my back and working upside down).
