cockpit avionics complete

This isn’t a page out of the The Book, but I wanted to mark a milestone.  I’ve got all of the avionics boxes installed in the cockpit and re-installed the upper fuselage skin, so it looks more like an airplane again.  Some of the screws were a bit difficult to get threaded because things didn’t exactly line up at first.  I actually had one screw that snapped halfway through the nut plate.  I tried to drill it out and use a reverse screw remover but the drill didn’t want to touch the screw itself.  I just drilled out the nut plate and replaced it, then went from there.
