I used my DXF CAD panel layout to have the panel and center console cut out with an abrasive waterjet. The two big spaces are for a 10.5"IPAD Pro and IPAD mini - with cooling air being blown through the cutouts. Viking View EIS is at top of panel, just right of the IPAD.

Nice.  I like the cooling holes for the iPads.

Looks great Larry! I recall having my panel water jet cut at that stage in my project and amazed at how fast it went. So much better than having to cut all those holes with typical tools and the placement is so precise using your CAD drawing.
