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

I was hoping more people would post pics of their dash so I'll add mine. Well its not the dash of my RV-7 but it is what I plan to have on my yet to be completed RV-7. Its a 4 screen Grand rapids EFIS with a Dynon as a backup. The radio stack is all Garmin with a GMA 340 audio panel, SL 30 Nav/Com, SL 40 Com and GTX 330 transponder.

Edit: For some reason I could not upload my pic. But this is what I'm getting anyway.

Ed, email it to me and I can post it.

This panel is owned by Pete James. Check out the center console. Very cool! I was wondering when someone was going to do this.
