Another week of nasty cold weather, but it did warm up nicely for the weekend.
Got in an hour yesterday, just adding more spiral wrap. Discovered I need 4 miniDIN connectors for the VOR ARINC circuit, and I don't have the pins or the $400 crimper.

Today helped Wayne rivet his panel substructure together. It seems so simple, but is a serious challenge. We only had to drill out one rivet.

Back at home, just about done with spiral wrap. Reinstalled the pilot stick, maybe for the last time. Hooked up the PTT circuit. Then started putting switches back together on the panel. After cleaning up the switch wire runs, I'll start powering everything back up to test.
