    Default Taller instrument panel

    Hi all I'm looking for the taller instrument panel. I have found the shorter one on cub dr. but would like to chage it out for the taller one when I rewire the panel. Any thoughts? This is the panel design I'm going for.

    Is this your panel? You could use the existing frame and make a new face and rivet it to the existing frame. I do not know a source for a new tall panel. With modern instruments and radios most people are switching to the short panel.

    The humped panel was made that way to hold the old, larger AN gyros. If you draw a line across the top and eliminate the hump you will see it is not needed for the instruments and the only reason it is needed for the radios is there is a large 170B com taking up a lot of room. I would rather have the straight across panel and not have to deal with the problem of the glare shield. I think you can get everything in the panel without it with modern 3 1/8" instruments.

    You might look at Cub Doctor panels, I think he makes one that is tall without the hump, ie might be as high as the Piper Hump panel but that high all the way across.
