Looks like it's about time for another lunchtime trip up there to see the pit. :) Love the improvements. Looking great!!!! Can't wait to fly in it again! If you see me arriving in a truck then you better lock all the doors cause I will probably try to take it home with me. :LOL: :LOL:

Ha ha. She may not let me, but it will fit through the door. Why do you think I had French doors put in for the back doors and double doors in the den. :wink: :LOL: :LOL: Can't wait to see it again!

One year anniversary!!

Post by Gunner » Tue Feb 12, 2008 9:03 pm

Yesterday marked one year since I started this insanity, so it's time for an update. I have been planning to do a huge update with tons of pics, but I have a couple things I want to finish first, so all you get today is the left auxiliary panel. 8)
At first glance, it may seem the same as last update, but I have changed a couple switches, added the landing lights switch, finished the gear handle, it's now lit up & functional. Alt gear handle is new, and threat warning aux is changed. Next week I'll post my one year + 1 week update. :D

Gunner: Your pit is one of the best that I've seen... My hat is off to you guy, what a great job... this has given me inspiration as well as all of us I'm sure..
Looking forward to seeing more shots of it the future.... :LOL:

One thing that I'd like to request if possible and if you don't mind is providing some shots of your wiring, and what type of equipment you used...

WOW, that is a lot of wiring. One question, is it complicated?? I mean I have my head in a fuel tank day in and day out but I don't do anything regarding wiring, LOL. Just ask Striker how many times we call avionics down to the barn, hehe.
