Brief Description:  USB port install

Decided to install the usb port on the right side lower console. This will allow me to easily plug in my iphone and or ipad for charging or use during flight. It will be fused with 2 amp inline fuse and direct wired to the battery so i can plug in on the ground w/o turning on master switch

I traced the cutout location then drilled the corners with 9/16 drill for my radius. Followed with dremel and cut out the opening. This was then finished off with filing and sanding and polishing as required for fit.

2 mounting holes were then match drilled to #30.

The usb came with two aluminum spacers. I decided to use them-one on top and one below. The top one i radiused the corners and polished up on the SB wheel.

Rivited the assembly to the console with pop rivits.

Connections under the console are similar to how I did the wig wag and 12 v adapter plug except I tried the molex mini connector. The wire was also labled as usb on both ends. The ground wire was grounded locally at the flasher unit attach screw with other grounds.

Rand the power wire up thru the rt gear tower and then trhu the baggage compartment with other wires and exit thru the firewall on rt side of battery. I had to cut several zip ties and then remove spiral wrap to do this and this time will leave it as is until i finish the panel because I think I have at least one more wire that need to directly connect to battery from the EMS. The wires from engine sensors and such will be comming into the panel on the other side of firewall. Plan to use an existing hole over there for it.
