RV-10 – Upper Dash Modifications

I have been working on the upper cowl lately in preparation of bonding the windshield in. I have wanted to have a small sub-panel mounted on top of the dash to house the Angle of Attack display so I cut a plug from Styrofoam and made the fiberglass fairing. I attached it to the upper cowl with brackets and mounted the display and compass in a flat aluminum panel.

 The process took a long time and a bunch of head scratching to get it all covered in marine vinyl but it was very much worth the effort. Here are some photos of the finished product along with a laser-cut vent grill I designed for the two fans in the dash.

Hope you enjoy reading my blog. I’ll try to post more frequently.
