Lots done today but very few pictures. I yanked both the emag and Slick mag, lower plugs, checked all engine bolts, cleaned and installed the air filter, lubricated and checked all engine controls, checked engine mounts, checked exhaust, blah blah blah. The only thing I saw was one of my smoke injectors hose had backed off a little, causing some exhaust blowback.

So this was the only picture I took today - a friend of mine is building an RV-8 and has an all garmin panel. My GRT auto pilot works well, but it has a lot to be desired. My main issue is there are a lot of eggs in one basket with my GRT PFD. If it fails, I loose an AI, autopilot, etc.. I am thinking of installing a GAD29, GMC507 and the Garmin GSA28 servos. The GMC507 is very very large. I would really like to put it where my GTX327 transponder is, but the GTX327 is 1.75" tall, and the GMC507 is 2.10" tall, which would interfere with my switches. I am thinking it would mount really nicely where my altimeter and old AP control head was. I would most likely replace my ASI with another G5 and call it a day.
