Got the overhead console out of LeoK's mold and fitted in, more or less.
Some trimming required, naturally.
Making a cable chase plenum in the A-pillars: Bondo some 3/4" PEX in place and cover with tape and release agent.
After the 3-ply layups cure, rip out the male mold elements and sand the Bondo off
Trim the layups and glue in place with flox...
Next is a micro skim coat and lots of sanding to fair them in.
I'll attach the overhead itself once I've glued the copper foil Vee antenna for VOR/LOC/GS and the comm #2 vertical to the inside of the canopy top and run some wires that I'd rather do while I have full open exposure to the route. Transitions from the plenums to the overhead and to each side of the fuselage/instrument panel will need to be laid up in roughly the same way. Then I get to try CanadianJOY's faux Zolatone paint process to hide all the blems and give me a rugged finish on the top and door interiors
