    Advice on Instrumentation for experimentals
    Hi Fellas. Was informed today by the DPE that will be performing my checkride that my plane must be equipped with an attitude indicator and heading indicator in order to perform all of the manouvers needed for my private pilot checkride. I am wondering what the most cost effective way of equipping the panel would be. I see some MGL products at a decent pricepoint but wonder what else is out there and who has had luck with what. Im attaching a picture of my panel. Im planning on putting the attitude indicator where the tach is currently (and putting on a tinytach instead) and heading in place of the compass. I think Id prefer to upsize the holes as well so all 6 gauges match

    Finally getting the engine mounted today. Hopefully wings on this week as well. Been working on prepping the hangar opening and getting the strip ready to seed. (And flying the new plane)

    fantastic!
    Ok, is it the same cable setup for throttle and choke? Just vernier for throttle and regular for choke? Seems expensive for a choke cable but throttle would be worth it
     
    Also got a rebuild kit from Matco to rebuild my calipers, and the kit that ads a second caliper to each wheel.

    Its stewarts ekopoly, pain in the butt to work with. 
    Plane is home now and reassembly commences today. Starting with the main gear and realized the brakes I took off look like junk. Anyone upgrade to dual calipers on their model iii? Im curious how much was entailed and the price. Luckilly just nabbed a brand new set of matco mc-1 masters off of ebay for cheap
     
    edit: couple other questions.
    1.) where would one purchase a new set of the rubber engine isolator thingys for the engine mount?
    2.) I believe the old throttle system is outdated? Any suggestions on the best throttle setup on a model iii with a 912?

    Well after countless enquiries and more than one tire kicker My guilt got the best of me. Im going to try to see this thing through. 15 hours of paint yesterday got everything through the layers of silver. Color coats are going on Tomorrow.

    ahhhh, so it only will show charging if the battery is a bit low? It has been on a tender all along so Maybe its fully charged and not charging then

    Ok, so I turned on the master and then one by one all of my accessories. The needle went down a tiny bit for everything I turned on, so I guess its working. Guess Ill start up the plane this week and see if I can get the needle to move up with some RPMs. I started this plane for the first time a few days ago and noticed the needle didnt move but maybe my accessories were sucking up as much as the little generator puts out at relatively low rpm.

    Hmmm, cant seem to find a schematic, I know Ive seen one somewhere. Guess ill crawl behind the panel and have a looksie. Hoping its a gauge issue and not a generator issue!

    Amperage reading- 912
    Ok, so my electrical skills are probably my achilles heel of wrenching on planes. Have a 912ULS in the plane, runs great, but I have no reading on my amperage gauge when its running, or ever for that matter. Needle does not move. All the connections on the rear of the gauge are made and it lights up with the panes. What readings should it be showing when running or not running with the master on?

    Flew around with a buddy the other day and got some pics of the strip, looks better than last time I flew over since I took down some more trees
