Question VPX on RV-4

Hi guys
Is there anyone here who has installed a VPX on his/her RV-4..

If so, where did you locate the box?? It is fairly big and since I'm thinking about the VPX as a potential update to my electrical system, I'm wondering where I will be able to put this box..

Any pictures will be very nice

Thanks

Bruno

I have had a VP-100 (bigger than VP-X)and VP-50 installed in my RV-4. I put them next to the firewall and it worked great for access and room. There are some pictures on the rv4chicks blog below.

Thumbs up VPX on RV-4

Thanks Thomas, I will have a look..

For me the firewall might not work because it is pretty loaded already,,

I was thinking about putting it under the floor if it fits....

Thanks again

Bruno

EDIT: Thomas, I like the shelf you put your VPX on, it is something I might copy if you don't mind...
