Today I was able to get the main instrument panel cut out. It turned out really nice.
The whole point of the panel is to get it installed!
The panel has cutouts for a left & right sub-panel, a 15″ LCD PFD display, side bars for Garmin G1000 compatible controls and a button bar on the bottom.
The LCD has a smoked acrylic cover on it – the flash illuminates the LCD frame behind this cover. You can’t see it under normal lighting conditions.
Here you can see a bit of how the custom LCD panel carrier is mounted into the instrument panel. I’m really happy with how this turned out and with any luck I’ll be able to get the left sub-panel wired up and get its edge-lit panel created tomorrow.
