Is fitting these mounts (for RV9-A) a nut and bolt assembly job, or is there much drilling and/or riveting involved?

Is there an installation guide available to download to get an idea of the work involved?

The RV-8 kit is a bolt in item. I added mine in while the wing was under construction. It could be retrofitted in working through one of the wing inspection covers. There is not a lot of room and there could be issues if the builder used a nut to hold a bolt in place instead of a nutplate. I used nutplates on my build so that everything could be removed and or installed with just one wrench.

The RV-9(A) roll kit is very similar to the RV-8. I do not remember there being instructions for the install but there were lots of other builders that used websites to document their build and I printed several photos of others installed servo to make sure I got my bracket installed correctly.

What AutoPilot is best bang for buck? Trio? Dynon? Trutrack?

Thanks, I’m right of first refusal on a low time RV-7a that has early dynon d-100 & d-180

Edit: I have decided to pass on the plane, also it had 2x D10 units not the D100/180 as initially thought. Regardless appreciate the responses always amazed how quickly y'all help!
I will be removing a Treo Pro Pilot, servos, mounts, and wiring from my RV-9A in the next few weeks as I do some instrument upgrades. All of this will be for sale if you are interested.
