Default Dynon Auto-Pilot Knob Module and Auto-Pilot Control Module

Does anyone have the metal template for the above modules that you are willing to sell or loan?

My RV-12 has the conversion wiring harness (the finish kit was shipped before 2012) and Van's won't give me any help in installing these modules so I am buying them from another source. But I would really like to use the metal template to make the holes in the panel.

I should say that the Van's people at Sun 'N Fun were helpful in talking about the project and reviewing the wiring diagram with me. But they said since they have never installed them in a RV-12 with a conversion wiring harness that they can't help me further. Please understand that I am not bad-mouthing Van's. Two of the Van's people spent at least 30 minutes with me at Sun 'N Fun discussing this project. I am just explaining why I need to get the metal template from another source.

As I recall, the Dynon Skyview Installation Manual has installation templates and wiring information. See Sections 18 and 19 of below:

Default AP knobs template

Well, even tho' they don't support the install in your case, you can still buy the parts you need.
The template is available in the webstore for 5 bucks:

Here is the link to the page:

This should work for you. If not, I will look for mine I think I still have it somewhere in the hangar but no guarantee.
