Section 29A - build time 951 hours

Working through the last of the fuselage kit - the upper firewall and avionics bay. Twenty six hours into deburring, counter sinking, service bulletins but it's coming along. I expect one more day to finish up the map box and top skin then prep for primer.
Looking through the rear bulkhead. This is pretty much what you will see while flying.
The panel - I'm not sure if I'll paint it or cover it with faux carbon fiber. The carbon fiber looks nice. I do know that I'll be putting in a different radio. The plan is a GTN 650 for IFR.
The avionic bay coming together.
Here's a shot of the oil tank / battery box. The service bulletin adds a lower forward brace to the assembly.
