lookin great titanhank, love the CF look

Now, comin from a foreigner, a genuine query: my ship sports 2x G5s as well, along with a magnetometer and OAT sensors... and backup battery on each of them. Accordingly I ditched the obsolete analog stuff altogether. Not even a wet compass anymore (the whiskey tasted rather sour).
Local rules being what there are, why are most if not all panels in the US still having these relics displayed, legal requirements?

Thanks!

No legal requirements that i am aware of. The panel is the original one from the plane and i needed something to fill the holes that made sense.
