Zenith 750 Cruzer I have an iPad mounted in the panel that will run Foreflight. That iPad is mounted in a panel mount made by Guardian Avionics. They also make a power supply for the iPad and I mounted that today on the side of the center console.

The iPad cord gets hard wired into the back, and it has an extra USB charger on the front.

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I chose this location because this will most likely only be used to charge my cell phone in flight. If it were in the panel, then the cord would be getting tangled with the control stick or laying across someone's lap. I don't want cords everywhere in flight.

 

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer With this charger on the side of the console, I can plug my phone in and leave it on the floor where it will be out of the way.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Seat pans are painted and the seat cushions are now being made by Flightline Interiors.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I have painted these pieces gray and used a darker grey for the EXPERIMENTAL sticker.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer The outside of these upper fuselage pieces are epoxy primed but not painted grey. They will get painted white with the exterior.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I riveted on these channels too. Look how nice the carpet fits!
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Here's the upper part of the channel where the fuel lines connect to elbow fittings. I'll install the fittings after paint. I see that I missed the top rivet too. I better go put that in....
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Here's how it currently sits. To finish the wiring I just need to install the capacitor which is only two wires. I just can't find a good location to mount it though!

I think the next step is to finish up some odds-n-ends on the engine so that I can run it and make sure all the sensors work on the Dynon screen. If they do, then I can rivet the glareshield panel and then fit the windshield.

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer The aft side window is ready to rivet, but I'll wait until I get some carpet tape and secure the carpet on the back wall. It's difficult to reach if I can't stick my arm through the aft window.

The other side window is ready to rivet in but I'd like to wait until after the wings are installed just to prevent any scratches.
