That's a smart idea, and it looks factory correct.
 
Kent, that's exactly why I wanted it like that. I've seen other twins with similar setups so it seemed a really good idea (probably based on experience!).

Steve, It has totally been a labor of love (well, a little money too!). We are finally to the point of being able to expect reliable flying between upgrade cycles (I hope!). My mechanic just added a mag switch guard that I have wanted so we continue to try to improve it.

 

I decided it was a good idea to try to protect my mag switches that were just sticking out from the panel with some sort of mag guard. My mechanic came up with this and it was exactly what I wanted. It protects the switches from being accidentally swiped off but leaves room for my fingers to operate them as well I can also see their position just fine.

Hi Eric,
I'm sure your mechanic is very proud of his work and very grateful you two resurrected your Apache!

The Lockheed Lodestar - It almost sounds like a challenge for you. Look what you did for Annie. I'll help you find parts.


 
That Lodestar is WAY beyond me!
