Short Description:  New EMS, MAP Sensor Tubing, Forest of Tabs

My father came down from VA and brought me some new "toys" so we spent the morning unloading his truck. He brought me two of the welders from his business along with a forge and anvil that was used on the family farm in the 1800s. He also brought the limited edition EAA welding shield I gave him a few years ago. I bought one for him and one from my brother but did not get one for myself because I did not realize it was a limited edition at the time. I have been trying to track one down ever since. I don't think Dad ever really cared for the auto-darkening so he gave it back to me. I am pretty excited to get to do some ironwork again and it was good to see Dad and show him the RV. My replacement EMS from Dynon arrived today. I mounted it to the panel I fabricated and the wiring harness attached to it without any issues. I packaged the old EMS up and will get it returned to Dynon ASAP. My order of roundhead screws and AN bolts arrived from ACS today so I used them to replace the temporary fasteners I used to attach the VP-X previously. I mounted the Forest of Tabs to the Firewall and drilled a hole through the firewall for the MAP sensor tubing and cut a length and fastened it to the MAP sensor and the manifold block. I am not entirely thrilled with the bend it makes entering the firewall but it's drilled now. Afterwards, I started wiring the J-plugs for the VP-X. J8 is complete and J10 and J12 are in progress. I attempted to use laminating labelwriter tape for labeling the wires, but it didn't want to adhere very well. I used the labelwriter to print the labels and clear heatshrink tubing over them.
