Latintan1, what did you use for an audio panel with two radios? I like your setup!

Default Budget VFR Panel...

I’m re-building a 6A. The original panel was analog with cast-off, but functional equipment. Items from Piper, Cessna, Terra, etc. were used in the spirit of simplicity and low costs. I don’t think anything was purchased new for the original panel. I’ve tried to keep that theme going from the original builder.

A friend was able to scrounge a big piece of .063” 2024 from a dumpster. A friend put a nice 90* bend on it with his brake. After a few hours in & out of the -6, I had the basic blank. I added .75” extra to the lower portion. Still high enough to clear occupants’ knees. The only new item on the panel is the GTR200. It’s just too good of a value on a single COMM / VFR aircraft to pass up. Even the air vents were scrounged from the dumpster. I’m amazed at what people will throw away.

I’m currently working on wiring the panel, at home. 115*F is too hot to be working in the hangar.

This is what I had to start...

Not 100% done with electronics, but my dash is new and cut and powder coated.
