Default Show us your panel !!!!!

I working on my panel and am wanting ideas on the layout. I'm using mostly analog instruments such as Altimeter, Vertical Speed, Air Speed, Compass, Turn Coordinator. Typical analong engine mangement gauges and a SL-40 comm and GTX-320A transponder. That about all for now going in my panel.

Everything else is going underneath the panel like switches, trim indicator, ELT control, Audio jacks, heat control.

If you have pics or can take a picture of your panel please post it here or send it to me and I can host and post it for you.

This is Jon Bakers panel.

"The interesting points are the use of the Piper Arrow quadrant and switch panel, and the small Mitchell engine guages.

My goal was to keep all my instruments in front of me and also to have room for a glove box and and a stereo.

The radio is stack is Garmin (430, 340, 320). The blank on the left is for the Garmin CDI which I still need to buy but can never seem to justify.

OK..... it's not mine, and it's not a -7, but it's very cool If you can do this in an -8, just imagine what you could all stuff in a -7's panel

Roberta:

Awesome panel. How do you like the KMD150? Also, there's a rib directly in front of the pilot behind the panel on the -7 tip-up (sorry, don't know the part# because I haven't gotten there yet!), but is your 6-pack a little off-center to deal with the rib or did you modify it? If it's off-center, does it bother you?

- Jamie, just thinking ahead here.

A few people have emailed asking about the peice I used below my panel for switches and such. It was the support peice that came with my QB. It was easy to just plate nut to the bottom of the original panel.
