HS34 Installation

Today was a long productive day in the hangar. I started by installing the HS34 to make sure that the bracket was in a good spot.

I finished the audio wiring for the front two jacks, and went home to escape the mid-day heat. Our windshield arrived today in a giant box. I ordered it through Mark at Avipro just a few days ago. The date of manufacture is 4 days ago, which makes it about as fresh as it could be. I opted for 1/8″ thickness and pre-trimmed. The smaller thickness will weigh less, and it should still be plenty adequate for our airplane.

Later in the evening Tabitha and I both came back out to enjoy the cooler temperature. She started by precoating the left aileron for taping.

We worked together on applying the tapes until she was ready to go home. I stayed for a few more hours and did more wiring.

Messy Intercom Wiring

The intercom wiring is messier than I would prefer for it to be.
