Brief Description:  Front seat support / panel redesign

Based on my recent wiring diagram rework, I spent some time in the shop today re-designing my instrument panel layout. This included new spots for breakers to the left and right of the EFIS since the type I'm using are larger than the ones I used on the Sonex. My previous design had them crammed to closely together.

I had also messed around a bit a few days ago finalizing how I was going to mount the EIS above the radio racks, since the EIS is about 1.5" shorter in width than the std 6.25" avionic racks.

Again, I'm not positive I'm complete (there are some things like the throttle cables, flap controls, etc., that aren't high critically on placement) with the redesign, but it gives me a path forward. I've also decided to run L angles on either side of the avionics racks (top to bottom) to provide additional stiffness to the panel.

Next, I enlarged the opening in the front seat support to provide additional room for the fuel lines to pass from the armrest tunnel to the front console and fuel selector valve.

Lastly, I decided I'll have enough space to install two grommets for each of the two sets of nylon tubes that will also route along the fuel lines. I previously thought I'd have to run two lines in one hole due to space restrictions, but I determined that comfortable spacing existed to run two lines on each side of the front seat support hole. I just haven't drilled the right side holes yet.
