Show us your panel !
 
I thought there should be a panel thread for the "9's" too

This is mine, simple but it works for me and there's room for more.
Notce the bumps I installed on the rudder peddals, brought them out 3/4 of a inch. "Keeps me toes off the brakes"
24.5hrs (almost out of prison!) :)

Planned panel...
 


Here is the panel plan I am working on...buying bits and pieces as I go...I'm trying to fit everything into a standard panel height. I like a little legroom on my XC!

Estimated $$ 19k and change FYI

Hi Frank

Nice, really nice. Clean and neat. I like the rudder bars too. ;)

Great panel
 
Frank,

That is a great looking panel. Clean and neat.

Great job, Dave

Nice minimalist panel. My RV-7 will be very similar to yours but with a single FlightDEK-180 on the pilot side. I'll substitute a Motion LS800 (or whatever is hot in 3 years) for the Axim.

Excellent job!

Nice panel Frank!! Clean and neat but with all the necessary items.

BTW, how did you make the caps for the drafty Vans vents?? My wife does not like the near free flow of cold air thru my vents when closed.

Best Wishes,

db

Yes, I immediately asked myself the same question. The caps look like aspirin bottle caps but I'd like to know the secret so my freeze ball wife won't complain.

caps
 
I turned them on my old trusty Atlas lathe from some uhmw stock I found at a rummage sale.
But the chase still goes on ---the vents still leak a bit at the seam where it screws together. I think it would have best to buy the good ones.

Show us your RV-9 instrument panel
 
No sticky for the RV-9 / 9A panels so the 7 thread will have to do. Fixed that :D MJS
