Fuel Purge Lockout

This lever is for the fuel purge valve which during a “hot start” is opened to allow cool fuel into the the fuel injection system  to replace hot fuel.  It will also kill the engine if engaged since the fuel is drained from the system.  I built a lock to prevent the pilot from inadvertently activating the fuel dump.  I would hate to be flying along and kill the engine at the wrong time. 

While looking at the instrument cover (which I had taken great care to get the carbon fiber to line up ..just right..)  I decided it just didnt look right so it was painted a flat black to match the dash.  It looks MUCH better now.

The wiring is all tidied up and ready to go!

The dash is starting really come together now.
