Brief Description:  Cockpit lighting

Riveted the console light brackets to the cabin cross brace.

Reinstalled the switch eyeball lights in the roll bar.

Built wire harnesses for the console lights and switch lights. Routed the LH harnesses along the main harness to the RH side behind the panel. This required redoing all of the string ties on the main harness.

Fabricated a temporary mount for the dimmer. This was clamped to the panel flange. I'm still undecided on if I want to use this dimmer so I don't want to drill the holes yet.

Temporarily hooked up the wires to the dimmer and tested them out. At night they provide plenty of the light on the panel switches, throttle quadrant and backup switches. They might be too bright.

Bolted the roll bar in place for the final time. Torqued the nuts and applied torque strip.

Used body filler to fill the grooves around the rivets in the panel that will not be covered by avionics. When I dried I sanded the filler down and re-primed the panel.
