|I used some smooth bore plastic hose to create a void and then used packing tape over it so I could lay fiberglass over it to form the cap.
|The fiberglass cap is epoxied in place and the first batch of micro/epoxy filler applied.
|After a couple of iterations of micro/epoxy treatment I used some high build primer to help fill some of the pin holes and voids.
|In this picture you can see the void that was created that I can use to route wiring into the overhead console. This is available on both sides of the cabin.
|A layer of epoxy primer as a final covering before paint.
|This is my rendition of the WAAS GPS antenna mount. Its inside of the airplane but because the GPS signal is not attenuated by the fiberglass which makes this just as good as mounting it on the exterior.
|Following up on the changes to the rudder pedal modifications the tunnel cover had to be modified. Here you can see the split, the slots for the arms, and the doubler to make up for the split.
