Remove the entire light fixture. There are three ways to mount the TailBeacon.

1. Buy the plastic spacer from Joey Shreve or have a friend print it with a 3D printer. The spacer fills the area that held the Grimes light and holds the TailBeacon clear of the tail cone.

2. Take the Grimes cup, turn it around, and install it with longer screws. That makes a nice base for mounting the TailBeacon.

3. Wait for the uAvionix adapter. It should be out by the end of this month.

All three methods will require that the hole in the tail cone be enlarged to 29mm.

Beacon mounting plate that came with the uAvionix box does not fit the tail...after removing tail lens, and bulb with its socket , do I remove the bulb mounting cup ? any way, the diameter of the shipped mounting plat with its ears sticking out, is larger than the tail opening.
the mounting plate on one of the Photos in breadcrumbs looks very different from what I got.
Thanks for any u-tube videos, or other information.
