Good ol Aspenite hey !!
Trev, carpet can be a static issue with our dry air in winter .
You may also consider  some rubberish material like I did. (Costco/Home depot/Wallmart etc)

Jack, are those those rubber square tiles that look like steel?

Interesting looks like rubber checkerplate. I am heading to the flooring store now and will see what I can find. Thanks jack. Good suggestion. I never had issues with carpet in my 73 before or my falcon but will see what they have.


Thanks bud

Rubber: comes in rolls (about 8 feet wide X ?feet long)
Costco but I think Walmart has some.

Hey Trev, that is called Diamond Plate and is the same design in both metal and rubber. If you can find the same rubber material, but where it looks like coin shapes, you'd be using exactly what Boeing uses...see attachment ????

Awesome. Well I went with old faithful. I have been using this rug for years without issues with static. I wanted to keep with the cozy theme. Seen as everything else is color matched. 

Still need some kind of trim near the rug so it doesn't curl but for now it's awesome as I don't want to glue or stick it down in case I need under the floor to replace stuff.


As we speak my wonderful wife is recovering my seat cushions for the front and passenger seats.

This is all I will have to show until the new seats go in.

Yes I have the real Gear Handle, I did have to add a RUSCOOL Clear knob to the end of it and I converted it to an LED instead of Incond. but I am using the real gear handle.

Thanks Bud.  Its coming along.  My wife did a great Job on the cushions, and I decided to just create the Pax seats and covered them.  I am no upholsterer though, my skills arent the greatest.  But it serves the purpose :)

Darn. Those are worth a lot of cash. I think the last one we bought we paid around the 3-4k mark

OH CRAP.... Makes me wish I had bought a ruscool one and donated the gear handle to you guys. for even 1/2 that.  the gear handle would have paid for most of my sim... and a new (Jackpilot) MCP LOL

If you still have the clear "wheel" part even if its cracked i would personally buy from you for my man cave.

From my e-mail each wind screen to get in really really good condition is right around 15-20k, just because of the heating element embedded in it....just a fyi, its gold.

It never came with that, just the gear handle missing the clear globe, that's why I bought one from ruscool, and it fit perfectly with a little modification to the wheel.

Installed my New CDU (Thanks Jack) and have installed my 52" TV for the front view. Gone are the 19" monitors. Next is to get a New Video card and get the frame rates up where they should be for a better flying experience.

New (to me) MCP and Efis (installed in the Pedestal.)


She is coming along. But still lots of work.


Need to get Franck to build me a bezel for my ISIS and Radio Panel and of course a new (Black) overhead panel.

Yes, I just got it. 

 It is supposed to look like the attached picture, but until recently I only used a GoFLight unit.  This unit will be a little better for now until I can do something closer to the real thing..
