Joseph Vandenbosch created a new topic ' Cessna 172F LED Interior lighting' in the forum. 2 days ago

I have a 1965 172F and am thinking of upgrading my interior lighting to LED. Specifically, I'm looking at upgrading the overhead dome/instrument panel lighting to LED and the map light on the front post on the pilot's side. For the map light, I'm looking at the Oplite Maplight 6 dual color LED map light as a replacement [www.oplite.com]. For the overhead lighting, I'm looking at a simple bulb replacement with an LED equivalent, whichever is more sensible. Does anyone have any experience in this area with their aircraft. Thoughts/suggestions?

Ok. I'll let you know if I think of any other 162s in your area.

Best,

Thanks Joe. Do you have 4 point seatbelts in the back? I bought the BAS for the front but would like a better price for rear belts.

I have a 4-point system in my 1965 172F. It was installed before I purchased the aircraft. The shoulder harnesses attach to the ceiling and it appears as though it uses the existing lap belts to fasten to. The shoulder belt fasteners have slots that fit over the lap belt mechanism which fits into the latch. They seem to work really well and i like the extra margin of safety they provide.

Thank you for the offer, but that’s a little far for us to drive. Thanks again, Jim
