Below is G35 owner Don M.'s pirep and his pictorial progress with the AAS Panel STC. He started on a Saturday morning and by 4PM he had the panel gutted.

 

 

"Bam! This thing fits awesome. I've got a 13" version of Travis's panel.

It took half a half a day to remove all the instruments, avionics, and the old panel: labeling all wires with my label maker as I removed them. Then you drill out all the rivets you can see... wiggle the panel... find the rivets you missed, keep drilling them out and grinding the heads off a few that attach the panel to the piano keys, and finally the old ugly panel comes right out!"         Don M.
