Haha Holy moly Bernard!

If i understand it correct you simulate all aircraft logic through relays like in the real aircraft instead of software?

How do you know all this? Manuals or what source of information do you use?

You definently need at least 7-8 beers for tackeling those wires!!! ;)

Any idea to cover the two upper holes  is welcomed!
Since i am driving an NG and not CL i dont need the amp meters. The lower one will have the wiper switch.

Sadly i dont know how to solve the ”push to test” function on the type 2 korrys that are in this panel without too much hazzle. So i am just gona skip it. Sometimes wo must compromise...

I just made up some plugs out of steel tube and internally welded some round caps in place. These are then just held in place by the original clamps.

I think the only other alternative is to make a complete new backplate.

Cheers,
Karl

Thats brilliant Karl! Looks great and good ide so you can still have the original mounting.

Where did you find the caps? Was it allready in good size or did you have to cut them?

I cut them out of a piece of 1.6mm sheet and machined them on my lathe to the correct fit.

Cheers,
Karl

But thanks!
