Rear Cabin Lights (Part 1)

Time: 1 hr

The rear cabin lights (same manufacturer as the front lights… Airkit, LLC) finally arrived from Aircraft Spruce so I made the round mounting plates from the anodized aluminum that I had purchased a while back. The lights are a lot smaller then I thought, but I knew they weren’t going to fit anyways. I also tested the touch dimmer on them and it seems to work fine so I’ll have to wire that up next. The factory cut holes for the rear lights are around 1.9″ (0.4″ larger then the front) so the mount plates needed to be a little larger.

Finished mounting plates. The lights fit a little loose inside the mounting plate so I may use a little bit of RTV when mounting them and make sure the mounting ring is nice and tight so they don’t slip around at all.
