Hi All, I would like hear the inventive ideas that owners use to make best use of space in our fitted airplanes. The collective genius of this forum must have solved some the space issues better than I have. Examples of space issues: How do you store your seat belts and harnesses so they are not tangled ? How do you store headsets and their cords? Fire extinguishers have been covered well in other forums. How do you store your TSO pvc fuel selector tool ? What do you use for a tool box? Do you have better ways to secure iPads and iPhones? Any ideas and pictures will be greatly appreciated. I secure my seat belts and harnesses with a clip on the upper window plastic but this will eventually crack the plastic. The control box, excess cable for my Zulu 3 and back up iPone power bank are in a pouch attached to the pilot side panel. My pvc fuel selector tool is attached below the pouch. My wife's in-ear headset dangles from the sun visor. I found at Lidl a zippered cloth fishing box that holds tools, first aid kit,spare fuel cap, spark plugs, spare batteries, chargers, fuel tester, operator manuals, led light, tie down and flight control securing devices, power bank for back up power and emergency starts, hatchet and iPad #2. This about 1 cubic foot cloth box sits on the back seat. I mounted an iPad on the copilot side and an iPhone 8 above the old DG and below the glare shield on the pilot side. I feed FF and WAAS to the iPad and iPhone from a Stratus which is wired to ship power eliminating cables. I will post pictures later. My airplane is 66 E with original panel lay out. I rather like the old panel lay out for it is simple like me. Thanks for any brilliant ideas. Eddie
