I’m almost ready to start putting the panel back together. I’ve floxed bars into the sides of the fuselage to tie into the bar on the bottom of the panel. Hopefully this will stiffen it enough to allow it to be used to rack your seat fore and aft. I’ve also covered the panel in the carbon fiber printed Di-Noc vinyl. It came out pretty nicely, but I have a couple of spots that need to be touched up. This stuff is pretty versatile, but the YouTube videos show you being able to pick it back off of the surface to work wrinkles out. This was not the case for me, maybe because I used their primer. You can also see here our covered glare shield from FlightLine, our engraved control stick by SET Graphics, and our new overhead switch and logo panels installed (by Team Concours).
