Here's my panel. After a summer of constant SF fog keeping me on the ground, it somehow grew some IFR capability (GPS175 + G5) ... funny how that works!

95 hours on it and it has been a joy to fly behind.

Nice looking panel. Although, I'm building an RV-8 and using Skyview, The colors, switches and labeling are exactly what I had in mind.

I'm laying out my panel by hand right now. Doing the cut template in 1/8 hardwood veneer. ....Tedious and nerve-wracking.

How well can you read the switch labeling at night? And, how do you illuminate them?
