I got to the airport a little early tonight to help a friend with a issue he had with fuel temperature sensor he had on his newly rebuilt RV-8 (it was previously in a fire). I really appreciate working under the subpanel on a RV-7 now after working under the -8's panel. Wow is that ever tight. I found a broken off wire on one of his wires and had him reading oil temp in no time. It feels great to help out the RV community after all the help they have offered me.

Next on my list of things to do is route the small gauge coax cable for the capacitive fuel sensors. I mounted the fuel vent system tubing first to see if there would be any interference, and then made a 1/4" hole in the fuselage just above the bulkhead connector for the wire to the capacitive fuel sensors.


I put a grommet in there and then routed the line through. Looks like this location will work fine, and I will secure the wire to the vent tube.


I also wired up the Outside Air Temperature wire in the fuselage. Once hooked up, I fired up the GRT EFIS and it displayed 72 degrees. I was sweating like it was 90 in the hangar, but I guess 72 is close enough.


Hard to see because of the contrast in this pic, but I installed some zip-tie nylon mounts on the forward side of the right subpanel.


I also mounted some nylon bases on the left subpanel. Great night at the hangar!
