Nope, just a plain old Brother labeler from WalMart. They look OK but if I had it to do over, I would try something else. With the burgandy color of the panel, the edges of the clear tape show pretty bad.

To get around that potential headache, I fabbed a small extention to contain the cable assemblies. Attached with 3 screws/nutplates at the flange it can be quicky dropped clear and away from the main (oversize) instrument panel.

I did the same thing. It was easy to fabricate and works very well.

Yep that is an option similar to the stock setup but I did not want the additional part sticking down as I am thick and crawling under there is hard enough already with the extra panel length.

Default Installing panel

Reviving an old thread.
I have the Oversize Panel. It's been cut and match drilled to the existing panel. I made an end shape template to get the correct dimension for the outboard bottom ends. Perfect but...
It won't go in! It won't clear the F704C. It looks like about 1/2" would have to be removed. That defeats the whole purpose.
How did others get the Oversize Panel in?
