What specifically are you looking for?

I rebuilt the panel in my airplane about a year ago with many, many pictures of the process. Specific to radio trays, I found they had a to be mounted a little higher than what you can put on the panel because of the cross-member/stringer F-402C.

On my panel, I raised the bottom edge by 1.5" to accommodate knees and longer legs so if you're going by plans built dimensions, you'll have an extra 1.5" hanging off the bottom of the radios other than what I already have.

Here's my solution, in progress.



The crossbar behind the panel makes layout a challenge to say the least!

Like I said... Lots of pictures...

Dad helped out and ended up making a shelf running along the longitudinal axis (if that makes sense...) My GRT MAP sensor box, ADS-B, and GRT ARINC429 box are mounted there.




Oh... and nevermind the melted uAvionixs Echo cover... the shop light got a bit too close.
