Cabin panel material

Hi i have attached a picture does anyone recommend a good solution to how to cover the large hole seen in the picture from previous electronics. I didnt know if there was a recommended product out there to provide a quality new look finish e.g aluminium or GRP sheeting.

many thanks

I had the same issue with my aluminum console and had starboard installed and it turned out good. Easy to work with and it is attached using countersunk screws/bolts.

You could use carbon fibre sheet, but make sure you wear a full body coverall and mask if you're cutting the stuff. The dust is evil.

With the carbon fibre what would you recommend for attaching to the existing frame , screws or an epoxy.

I'd go aluminum and screw it to the existing. It's cheap, looks good powder coated, and is easy to work with. Find a local water jet to cut it and you can get everything cut to perfection.

Carbon looks cool but is a bear to work with. Pricey too.

I did our dash panels in aluminium then laminated formica type laminate over the ally with epoxy resin then rounded off the edges & brushed the raw aluminium edge with a paint to match then clear lacquered the whole lot with automotive 2 pack lacquer
The dash now looks like a wood laminate dash & has done 3 seasons in an open cockpit & looks realy good obviously there are hundreds of laminate designs so doesn't have to be wood

I get the feeling that you would need to sell your first born in order to pay for them.

They DO look sweet though.
