I was also able to get the cover fit between the forward and center tunnel.

the angle stock around the stick areas are for the 'shifter' covers I found on Ebay. They are black suede with red stiching and look sharp next to the new seats. The small rectangle opening on the forward tunnel if for the controller for my heated seats!

Wow heated seats. How much power draw for the heat? Is there heat for both seats, or only the pilot?

Living in WI, and having had a car with heated seats, I sure appreciate the feature. I guess I am getting pretty "soft" as I ahem....mature!

Both front seats are have the heat pads installed on the bottom and back. The controller is split so that you can run either side independent. Low setting draws 3 amps, 5 amps high. I'll let you know how well it works when it all gets connected and powered.

I was just contemplating removing my remaining mag. I kept the one with the impulse coupler when I installed the E-Mag.

Today officially starts 2 weeks of back to back Vacation- or in this case 'staycation'. Next week my oldest daughter gets married, but the balance of this week should be enough for me to get my electrical system completed. Over the weekend, I was able to get my electric elevator trim wired and functional. The wires for the electric aileron trim get installed in the morning. I also removed the vertical fin and rudder for primer. My paint got ordered this morning and should be in the shop by the end of the week. 3 Colors and clearcoat! The plan is to also get the instrument panel painted so that the final wiring can get done.
Other items on the list - Wheel pants fit, cowl fit, rivet aft tunnel and the list still continues for 29 more items..The only photo this time is the baggage compartment cover...
