Show us your panel!
I haven't seen a panel thread for 8's, so I thought I'd kick 'er off!

Here's my front panel so far; in a few weeks I should be able to update this with a lit picture. Hopefully, only the intended components will produce light... The blank area on the right side is my 'play area' - it's removable, and empty right now - ready for expansion. I'll update my post with knee and arm panels, too - right now I'm adding to them lots of buttons, valves, lights, and things that go beep.

What do your front, knee, arm, and miscellaneous panels look like?

Here is my panel:
Garmin GNS-430, GTX-327
Grabd Rapids Dual EFIS and EIS-4000
TruTrak Digiflight IIVSG

It all works and each item communicates the garage

Now Jeff, you're going to continue the stereotype of southerners who work (and fly?) barefooted.... :rolleyes:

I really like the shade of gray you used on your panel. What paint did you use?

Paint Scheme
Larry - I couldn't find a graphic of your paint scheme on your website. Do you have it up yet, or are you waiting for the baby to come out of the paint shop? BTW, you really made the upper gear intersection fairings sound easy!

barefoot'n it
But Paul, when I moved down here I just remembered that saying "When in the south, do as the...." oh wait, wrong one. :D

Actually I do usually fly barefoot, most of my shoes are too wide and get stuck between the flanges of the rudder pedals. Darn fat feet!
