The panel pages linked to below show the progress of my RV-6A panel from layout design, to cutting holes, to final installation and labeling.

 

The electrical system pages show some of the details on how I installed the electrical system components.  My electrical system design is based on the philosophy and designs presented by Bob Nuckolls in his AeroElectric Design book (see AeroElectric Connection link).
