Removed the Panel, tidyed up the cockpit. Removed dust and debrie, took a close look at everything visible. Pedal mounted brakes, fuel shut off, camera to remote LCD under panel on right side for fuel amount.
Took the next step, removed existing wiring connected to the engine, Dismounted the engine and its on the bench to be worked on. The air baffles are all riveted in place, so the minor challenge is learning how to drill out rivets in thin aluminum. I have to modify anyway for the turbo and will be nice to have the side panels easily removable.
Next Steps: Check clearances on the engine assembled in 2010, then remove everything. By next week should know if I need to lap the valve seats, etc.
