Anti Ice Panel back online, new more sofisticated PCB, still have to solder power connector but then its 100% complete way better than version 1.

By the way, if anyone has the correct distance the map chartholder should have from the edge of the glareshield, let me know. Looks like 5-6cm if looking at pictures.

Thanks again John, and to all others, the quality is extremely nice and if you screw it in place it does not even flex (like some other vendors).

New plan for backlight. I will not have dimming func in each panel, instead i will use a hardware dimmer that controls the overhead panel.

One packed unit!

Will start removing the components so there will be nice space for the custom pcb in progress!

All parts out.

Keeping the wires makes the interfacing so easy with all the grounds connected to eachother and only 2-4 24V input.

Two sides here, ”keep everything as it is” and ”cut and minimalize”. I know which side i am on.
I think the panel got 1kg lighter without all the boards/resistors and fuses. Hehe

You may want to consider putting in circuit breaker panel frames for use later when you acquire a set. It would be a different shape than what you have now and would allow a clean upgrade in the future.

Unfortunatly i dont think i have the space for it. Even if i can fit ig in the cockpit i think the unit is to wide so it will ”stick out” in the back.

That pieace will be the last i get so it will be a problem when the sim is 99% complete... ...in 2047... :)

Does anyone know if the 737-800 Brake preassure gauge on the MIP is 2" size?

I am thinking of getting this item, but unsure if its the right size...
