We are thinking about installing the overhead air panel on an existing RV-10 here on the field.   Has anyone retrofitted the panel on an flying airframe?

I installed mine when my cabin top was off.  But I'm curious what your experience was on the retro fit and issues you encountered?

We have had a couple people over the years install the overhead console after the plane was completed. It is possible
Just awkward because you are working upside down. One person said if was very easy. Never heard from the other

FWIW

It may be more do-able if you purchase an inverted fuel
and oil system for your RV-10. That way you can
get a helper or two and do it in-flight. If you can
hold it inverted long enough for the quick set
epoxy, it wouldn't be such a tough job.

He’s wanting a clear coat over the carbon fiber finish. What’s the process to finish off the carbon surface to get that nice finish?

In my case, it was to use 5 minute epoxy to fill big voids, sand smooth (600 grit), scuff the whole thing with grey scotchbrite, then shoot two coats of finish.
