Very nice looking.

The arched cutout on the lower edge of the panel solves all stick height issues.
I'm considering that myself.

What did you do for circuit breakers? Where are they located?

Itís a mix of CB switches and I have a blade fuse panel on hinges underneath the panel.

If needed in flight, which it should never be. You pull the aft pin and the panel presents with a diagram printed in the EP checklist.

Another nifty solution.

Thanks!

There's some fancy panels out there -) think I've posted this before but I still get a kick out of driving my 8 like the good old days -)
I spent a lot of hours staring at glass for a living, am over that!👍

FYI, for normal operation the 'Stby battery' (backup battery source for GDU/GEA24/GSU25) switch should be left on, turn on prior to start and turn off last at shutdown.

OK, got it. Thanks for the tip! Seller had told me to turn off after startup, but that makes sense to leave it on in event of an electrical failure.

Default 8 panel

Been flying this one for a few years, pretty simple.
