Carl,
Glad to see your back at it. I'm jealous that your close to finishing the covering. I'm thinking you guys want to get out of the cold in Texas and come to Florida so I can take advantage of your Oratex expertise

Very nice work Carl and youíre making great progress. Good advice on the magnetometer wiring. Interference has been my main concern so looks like proximity to the Wig/wag may not be the issue I originally thought. Also, really do like that red you have for the Oratex. Looking forward to seeing your assembled plane - as Iím sure you are too !!.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I posted a picture of the panel in the "Show Us Your Panel" thread under the "Electrical/Inst/Avionics" forum.

You know Texas weather Brett. It dipped below freezing Sunday night but I'll be out doing yard work in short sleeves with a high of 74 forecast for Thursday. You do remember that lovely grass strip with a growing and friendly aviation community just down the road from my house? Come on over, build a hanger, and I'll be happy to help with Oratex. In fact, if my hanger project starts in early summer, we can drip glue on my floor!

Hey Carl, since you are near Tyler do you happen to know the composer Arnold Sherman?

Carl,
To be honest we have been getting some bigger than usual temperature changes here as well.

Jim,

I don't know Mr Sherman but looked him up out of curiosity. His web site has quite a collection of pieces he has composed or arranged. As I'm sure you know, several of the pieces have .mp3 files of 3-4 minute selections from performances by various ensembles. He is the Music and Arts Director at a local church. They surely must have a fantastic bell choir under his direction.

Yes, Arnold is a master of arranging, I was fortunate to have attened a few of his clinics over the years, he gave me a great perspective in conducting several of my own hand bell choirs, small world.

Back to the plane, did you, any of you find the line that is drawn on the instrument panel from Kitfox to be the final shape. I do not have the firewall forward yet ( I called Debra yesterday to make the order but no callback, maybe today) but I am ready to start the panel layout.

Yes, I used the line as the final shape. It worked well.
