Hi Jack.

I got the vinyl on eBay where there is plenty of choice for colors and size of rolls.

It's adhesive Jack. It's the same vinyl that is used to wrap cars.

Here is a link to an example

One of the projects on my never shrinking list of things to do in my 737 was a keypad to access some of the functions that currently require a keyboard like requesting pushback in GSX.

I bought a while ago a Genovation CP24 programmable keypad for this purpose but a wanted a way to mount it so that it looks like part of the cockpit.

I designed a replacement top part of the CP24 case such that it will mount in one of the unused positions in my center pedastal.

This is the first prototype that I 3D printed. The final version will of course be painted in Boeing gray to match the rest of the pedastal.

With the addition of the FO side MComm and the completion of my programmable keypad panel, my center pedestal is finished for now.

I am still hoping at some future date to be able to add more functionality to the weather radar and ACP.

Looking good David. I like the look of the keypad, it really just belends into everything.
