Thanks Dr Olds, actually the panel isn't Carbon Fiber, it's vinyl with a carbon fiber texture. I purchased it from they have many textures and colors. I meant to order red for the panel and black for above panel, but somehow ordered it black. I like the look but It would have been better contrast with a red panel with all the black displays, radio and garmin.

Very nice panel!  Where did you get the carbon fiber panel?  Aerotronics?

I'm impressed with the colour and definition in bright sunlight, Like the carbon look on the panel as well. Hope the exterior is going to as spectacular.

Thanks Bob, believe it or not, I hate video games. Thanks Ben, I spent hours looking at my empty panel to decide on the layout. Mark...Wiz.. Kevin, that's exactly what my friend said. He also said, that's not flying, that's playing.

For me, I love looking outside, and at a glance this tells me more than scanning 6 gauges plus engine gauges. If the need arises, and I see the inside matches the outside enough times, I will feel safe trusting the inside if I can't see the outside. In 1975 I got to fly in an F111F. It had what we now call glass Panel. When I used it for the first time, I said that is for me, so here I am.
