Default nice!

Great work as always Walt.

I seem to remember you being asked at least a few times what you use to label...but search has failed me. What do you use to label the panel??

I like that switch panel - I'm thinking about doing that during MLU II.

Labels on this one are P-Touch although I've also used "Aircraft engravers". The P-touch look darn good, are easy to use and install and are less expensive (free). They also give you the ability to change your mind with much less hassle.
