Next up on the list was the right PMag. I ended up pulling apart the wiring pig tail that I created to allow updating of the EICommander and found that for the right PMag I had swapped the ground wire with the wire used to sense engine RPM. After putting the wires in the correct location everything worked well with that.
Oh one more thing, I re-installed the horizontal and vertical stabilizers again this week in preparation for finishing the fairing the covers the gaps between the two of them. Expect pictures of that in my next post.
Next up on the agenda is the cover for the center console. I had to break out my wood working skills that may have atrophied a little since I started this airplane building business but I managed to get a serviceable mold for the console cover.

I think the plenum is about as far as I am going to get it for the foreseeable future. I am testing a product called Smooth Prime and it has to sit for three weeks before I can put the epoxy primer over the entire thing and call it finished.
|Here is is after I sprayed a coat of "Smooth Prime". I will sand this down to a smooth finish and then set it aside and wait.|
Oh, and the remaining parts I needed to finish the throttle and mixture cable mounts on the engine came in so I finished it up.
|Here it is ready to go!|
