Cut hole for alternator load meter in instrument panel
The alternator is build into the Diehl adaptor case. Output is rated for 20 amps. The output is run through a shunt. The voltage across the shunt is read by an ammeter calibrated to show 100 percent at 20 amps through the shunt.
The instrument panel is ready for paint. The backup aluminum sheet that goes behind the fiberglass panel is ready for alidyne, no paint, so the conductivity is maintained. Most of the wiring has been done, but then disassembled for painting. About 90% of the wiring from the panel to the rest of the aircraft is through connectors.
