  1. I used a product called prekote to clean and prepare the 6061 alloy my Sonex is built with. I then used Wattyl etch primer over the top. It was a lot of work and the Wattyl etch primer may not have been the best product to use as its a little soft and should actually be top coated. But I felt it was a lot better for my health than using products like alodine and two pack with isoncyanates

  5. How hot.. damn hot! I use a piece of static cling film cut to size and placed directly overhead. Hasn't fallen off yet in 3 years. Along with mandatory hat and sunscreen provides a bit of relief from direct sun.

  8. I've had my Dynon D180 go into a reboot loop at inoportune times, I have a mechanical ASI as backup. Have flown approach and landing purely on the ASI, also takeoffs.. no drama except if heading off on a cross country. A few threats to replace it with an MGL and it comes good after a few minutes.

  10. This has come a few times in the past, someone else put me on to one of these: I recommend a Vority Dual USB car charger from Amazon. 3.1A and 1A outlets. It will charge my mini iPad and iphone together and most importantly, NO radio interference on the MGL v6 when charging.
