I've pretty much completed phase 1 of my panel upgrade. I wanted to upgrade the panel with modern tech, a better autopilot, and reduce some of the weight and complexity without cutting a new panel.
I've already started thinking about phase 2 which will include a new panel I'll build on the bench. However, I'm gone 8 months of the year for work, so it'll probably be a while before it's completed and installed.
