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.

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).
