Very nice, Neal. Thanks for posting. I like the covered dash, the grab handles on the roll hoop, etc.

The I believe the quadrant was made by Dayton Murdock back in 2003 and I purchased it through Aircraft Spruce at the time. I really like the quadrant.

Here is a link to the quadrant: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalo...?clickkey=4196

Default it all goes up for sale

I got a good build... when I bought the 9A. But it is too heavy.
Everything you see in red is up for sale. Putting a GRT mini in as primary rather than a backup. Will cut new metal and probably paint it red again... reminds me of a bordello I saw in a movie once.

Default RV 6 steam panel

My plain jane panel. I also have a garmin 396 that I suction mount but I'm going to try to resist the temptation to bling up the panel.

I would take a close look at making sure you have space for an Ipad/Ipad mini. It's like turning a steam-panel into a glass panel ;-)

Default Best of Both

Not strictly steam, but after mechanical electrically driven AH and DG and a 3 1/8 CDI in the first project, the next project ditched the failure prone, vibration sensitive, expensive single-purpose gyros for two small EFIS, leaving the instantly interpretable, easily viewed in any light and slant angle four-pack, which also yielded an HSI (vastly superior to a CDI). It's proven the easiest to pilot and understand of all five -7s I've built. The later ones had increasingly complex EFIS' that provided no more useful information and are far more difficult to quickly pick off important info without staring and squinting at them. There's nothing more readily understood than a big, fat, round steam gauge.

Steam is easy on the eyes, but the D10A (serves as HSI) and D6 (AH) gets rid of gyros. Once upon a time a bigger Lowrance 1000 occupied the area where the 510 now sits; that's why it looks scabbed on - it is. Instead of pure steam, go for the combo. Cost is nearly the same.
