I researched avionics, I decided to go for a combination of Dynon and Garmin, since I already have some Dynon parts based on my original reasoning for VFR only. Now that I decided to go for IFR, I ended with a mix, since the IFR navigator has to be Garmin. I contacted both AFS and Stein Air. I received better quotes from AFS.
I researched and bought the engine, I ended up selecting the Lycomyn IO360. I also ordered the fuel and brake lines.
Installed the insulation.
A little more work with the electrical Flap Mechanism.
Fitted, drilled, debured, and primed the avionics panel parts.
