Creating An Instrument Panel

After the overhauled engine was installed at Aero Design at BAF in 2008, I flat bedded N26464 to VIP Avionics at HFD. I hadn't thought about changing the registration yet. The whole panel was removed, a new panel designed, made and ingraved.

All new engine instruments were to be installed, along with new navigation and communication radios (avionics). Also, new flight instruments, lights and switches were installed. All the fuses were replaced with a circuit breaker for each individual curcuit. What a job well done by the folks at VIP. I hoped the job was made easier with the windscreen and bow removed. When this was done, I flat bedded the Grumman Cheetah back to Westfield, MA.
That was the last of four trips on my snowmobile trailer. Anyone want to buy a four place snowmobile trailer?
