Front cockpit panel back

Couldn’t decide exactly what to put in the front panel but Sam, last year, bought me an ex Spitfire variometer which we tested on Boxing day last year by going up in a Piper Cherokee and diving down and back up to 1,000′ over the coast in Jersey !

I have now mapped a central removal panel (similar to rear cockpit) and have mounted the variometer in the middle.

The mockup of the panel was pretty much spot on, with only 15 minutes of filing and small bends to get it to fit exactly within the turtle deck lines.

Once I have decided what else goes into this panel I will cut a piece of my green cow hide ! and stretch/glue to cover the surface before re fitting.
