Some more stuff fitted. Upgrade the brakes to RV wheels and callipers. Busy modifying a Lancair 320 exhaust to fit this installation.

Desided to remove the old alternator and fit a new light weight belt driven alternator. By doing so there is now space to fit a spin on oil filter instead of the old screen oil filter on the back of the engine. New light weight starter fitted to reduce weight on the engine side of the firewall.

Just a short update. AOJ's instruments will be fitted shortly, Garmin G3X with AP. As per the pictures above a lightweight alternator and starter were fitted. New three blade VP prop should arrive in about two weeks. Hans, as always, went out of his way with mods and getting rid of extra weight.
