If only I'd known how much work was involved. I may have thought twice about it! Not long now, just waiting for the prop.

Fully agree. What a real neat job! I like the idea of having the call sign etc engraved on the panel.
Mine has to be renewed every few months.

Fortunately I can do AutoCAD, which meant a quick email was all that was required to get the design over to the company (cut-tec.co.uk). Would have contacted a fellow ribnetter had I realised you had access to such a toy.

Must say I was a little suprised however, when I got the panel back, to find the fixing holes around the square opening were in the wrong place. After a bit if cursing I realised the dimensions in the VW Marine installation book were wrong by a couple of mm, and that the panel was exactly as I had specified. Took a while with the Dremel to ovalise the holes to get it to fit.
