Seat belts, canopy latch, misc. 6 hours

Today I finished the work on my canopy latch. I had a buddy make me a bushing for the pivot bolt of thr canopy latch. It was made to be a press fit so there was no wobble in the pivot point. I also install the lower portion of my seat belts. I fabricated an interior fairing for my windshield

More wiring. 4 hours

The past few days I've worked on my wiring. I have got all of my wiring roughed  in. Now I've taped the harness together and have removed it from the plane where I will wrap it with a spiral wrap to keep it all
together. 

Wiring 2 hrs

Tonight I worked on wiring. My plan is to get all, or the majority of my wires ran, and put them together as an assembly, or harness. Right now I am just routing wires, cutting, and tagging. Looks like a mess now but it will be nice clean when I get done with it.  Already figured out I'm going to need about 5 times the wire I thought.

Wheel pant support bracket 2 hour

I built the wheel pant support brackets. 

Instrument panel 4 hrs. 447 total hrs

The past couple of nights I've worked on laying out the instrument panel. I've also ordered some wiring  materials which should be here tomorrow. I'm tired of working on stuff with no real tangible result and looking forward to the instrument panel and wiring work. 

Misc 4 hour

I have spent the past several times working on the plane on misc items. Tying up loose ends and doing little things that don't amount to much, but have to be done 
Riveted vertical stabilizer

Made fairings
