Been a while since I've posted. Making a custom frame for my overhead so it'll fit my cockpit. Using aluminum which is fun and frustrating to work with. Hope to start wiring this weekend.

Do you want too buy a real Forward Overhead frame?

Not sure it would fit the cockpit?  When I did a measurement my panels from flightsimulatorparts.com seem to be a bit bigger than OEM...wish I had known that before I bought them!

Ordered the remaining Light Plates and Backing plates for the left side console in the F16 Sim.

Ordered the 737 MAX EFIS for CPT and FO.

Picked up a bunch of Pokeys cards from Warren for the F16 Sim

Got confirmation my F16 Forward and Aft Glare Shields will ship this month
Sim 1:  F16, running Falcon 4 BMS - In Build using a mix of real and repro parts + Pokeys cards
Sim 2:  737 MAX - Still in parts collecting phase (CDU / MCP / EFIS)

Nice overhead. How did you get the panels attached to frame?

Small screws. Not the dzus kind. The frame is a bunch of aluminum angle pieces and a few flats. It is nice and light but a bit too flexible. Working on studying it up now. Will all be wired to a fds interface card.

I have found this to be the case with thin metal as well. It requires another thicker metal frame or wood to prevent sagging . Your project looks great.
