    Recently my altimeter quit. I decided to go with the MGL ALT-3. However, I changed my mind and decided to bite the bullet and go with the MGL Extreme. The altimeter would have just done one thing. The Extreme is an all in one and will do more than I will ever need. I got it installed and I believe my panel is complete. Installation was very easy as it fit right into a 3 1/8 hole. Had to run an OAT sender which the extreme came with a nicer sensor than the Altimeter. I put it in the passenger rear quarter window under the wing. Haven't had a chance to fly it since we are in the midst of a blizzard here in central Texas but this weekend it's gonna be back in the 70's so I should be good to go this weekend.

    I'm making progress. A little paint and some labels.

    I blush to confess that I used gray propeller paint.

    By the end of the week it should be permanently mounted in the airplane.

    Hey Tom,

    Panel looks great....Nothing wrong with prop paint.....FWIW.....I used some left over body lacquer I had from a '87 Merc Grand Marquis.....proper application gives it a nice satin, non reflective surface (post # 5 on this thread). Also used it for the seat pan, glareshield, custom baggage bay...oh crap!...what didn't I use it for?

    BTW - what did you use for the markings on the panel?

    Cheers,

    Hello Dave,
    I used a Brother Label Maker with black letters printed on 1/4" clear tape.

    See more here!

    All the best,
    Tom

    Tom,
    I have been following your build website and noticed you have installed your panel and are now wiring it. FWIW I found that it was MUCH easier to install all the panel components and then prewire as much of them as possible on the bench. Then install the panel in the airplane and finish up the wiring. In fact I came up with a way to pivot the panel down 90 degrees so the backside was facing up, which made the final "in-place" wiring much easier.

    I gave serious consideration to prewiring the panel on the bench but, in the end, I decided to wire it in place. My avionics-rocket-scientist friend is coaching me on assembling the harnesses on the bench and then installing then in the panel. I'll probably have to remove the radio mounting bracket to install the molex connector and antenna lead.

    It goes without saying that I may regret my decision. If this happens I'll "fess-up" on the website.

    At the moment my avionics-rocket-scientist friend is on some South Pacific Paradise Island fixing a radar station. I hate it when he abandons me like this.
