Floor protection plates are in after giving them a good rub. Carb.heat, throttle levers and tonight also fuel controls are put in place. Starting to look like an airplane (at least on the inside!).
Battery has been purchased. A GEL based battery suitable for motorcycle and snow scooter (!), which can be mounted even at 90 deg. The gel makes it less likely to leak. It's a 12 V, 9 Ah battery. It will be placed just behind the front seat to the right of the stick. Covered by the special AAF battery box and I do have the original connector (got it on Ebay). However, I prefer to wire the battery using new AWG-16 wires which has been laid under the floor. The original connector will be there, but only as a dummy.
Next up: fix the trim indicator issue, prime and paint new 3 mm steel rods that go between breake pedals rear and front. Then a very exciting project: A colleague of mine has set out to help me mount a soft ski bag, hidden in the rear fuselage. This must be carefully done so the bag and contents will not in any way reach any control wires. Pictures coming soon!
