[quote=beberle;867892]I would take a close look at making sure you have space for an Ipad/Ipad mini. It's like turning a steam-panel into a glass panel ;-)

I really like that idea, and your angle mount on the right side looks like a great setup too. I'm planning on having a nice empty-ish spot on the right that would make a perfect iPad home.

Where are you guys sourcing your steam gauges? Has anyone found a set from an aviation flea market, where someone was changing to glass and was selling a whole panel-full of them?

I can't really justify (or afford) an upgrade, however, this one still does everything I need.

Default Cant Resist

This started out as a large format 10" glass panel, but it could not handle the environment. This has been getting the job done for over 200 hours. The Aspen never made it past paper stage.

These things are so lovely! This is like Playboy magazine for men in their 60's and 70's.
