Dynon Compass Module

I had to start by removing the carburetor this morning. This will give me plenty of room to work on the lower cowling pieces. I started preparing the sheets for the bottom. I think I’m going to start from the top and wrap them around, making the middle cut last.
I took a break from all of that to make some brackets for the Dynon compass modules. I tried to devise a system that would allow me to position the parts accurately during installation, since they are supposed to be lined up with the main box within a degree or less.

The bottom cowl pieces haven’t been as easy as the top pieces, but here’s the start.
