ELT & Strobe Power Supply Installation with Van's Mounts

Van's Aircraft has come up with a nice pair of ELT/Strobe power supply mounts for both the right and left sides of the RV 10. These are not part of the kit, but are available separately. At the time I installed these they did not make one for the right side. But with a little work I was able to get it to fit. As you can see they are mounted into the J channels with "pop rivets." They come pre-punched for the Whelen strobe power supply with the rivets and nutplates included. To mount the ELT I had to drill new mounting holes in the left mounting plate that matched the Emergency Beacon Corps unit. All in all these mounts make for a nice clean installation.
