I do not have access to my web site anymore!  I could ask Don, but I just let it there.  I will eventually upload my renovation pictures on Zenith Aero. 

For the electrical system, I simplified it quite a bit now.  I removed one contactor and battery bus and I am going with a Cessna style master switch.  I kept the essential bus, the Over voltage protection and fuel pump on battery bus.  Still have common point for grounding on the firewall for anything close by.

Salut Normand,

I flew my 601 from 2004 until 2010.  Then I decided to replace the Subaru engine with an aircraft engine.  I haven't worked on this for some years, but now, the fuselage is at the paint shop and I am trying to finish restoring all flying surfaces (they were damaged by hail).  This renovation project is pretty extensive: new engine, new landing gear with 5.00X5 wheels, new skins, new elevator and ailerons, updated instruments panel, simplified electrical system and more...

Dynon heated pitot/AOA. The SafeAir mast is mounted directly on the inspection plate which is installed flush with the skin
