    Defoliation. Agent Orange alternative.

    Actually, I have to do 2 hours and 15 landings with a CFI for insurance. Let's see how badly I can scare him.

    I have to call Garmin Monday and find out how to get the GTX 335 to talk to the G5, MVP-50, GTR 225, and the E-04. The GTX 335 has three RS-232 outputs but there are a zillion protocol possibilities.

    Wish me luck.

    I would like to add a GFC 500 autopilot but it isn't approved for the 180 yet. It is approved for the 182. Are the airframes much different?

    Pitch system on 180 uses a trimming stabilizer. The 182 uses a trim tab on the elevator. Thus a different pitch control on the autopilot.

    I think pitch trim is optional

    That is part of the differences. The trim system has operationally different loads. They may not seem like much to us as pilots but for systems certification they are enough different.

    Garmin was very helpful. Turns out I did not have the latest installation document. MapMX from GTX 335 to G5 and GTR 225.

After lots of testing I used standard Krylon since it worked better than anything else I tried, including the Krylon paint for plastics. I was happy enough with that until I took a ride with a friend who had the best looking interior I'd ever seen in a Skywagon. It didn't take long to decide to do the same. It still turns heads. https://youtu.be/zo06DxOIJy8
    Thats a great idea !!! I need to replace th headliner in mine and have been dreading it. Now I'm not dreading it.!!
    I may be wrong but that probably won't stop me from arguing about it.
