They do fit, you need to modify the Fuel Temperature gauge to fit.

The holes in the backer need to be drilled to a clearance hole. Tap the holes in the gauges with a 6/32" tap making sure you don't drive the tap into the PCB.

Large gauge needs to be reworked by using screws in the Bezel.

Been making steady progress and now have throttle quadrant, yoke and rudder pedals all installed and fully functioning.

However, my todo list seems to be getting longer rather than shorter 😎

Today I got the seat rails and seat fixed in place as well as some behind the scenes cable tidying and some software tinkering.

Last update for today 😃

I designed and printed an end cap for the FDS seat rails as I know at some point I'm going to stand on the corner and utter some non-repeatable expletives!

I still have to do the left side which is a little more complex on the back end because of the seat locking rail.

The end caps fit onto the ends of the rail and then are screwed to the base.

Almost makes me want to go out and purchase a 3D Printer

Good work David.

Second seat rail end cap is done. This is wider as it has to encompass the main and locking rail.

Now just have to print the two caps for the other end.

Keep the photos coming David. You are doing a great job and that 3D printer is pretty sweet!

I also moved the MIP into the nose and started fitting the lower liners.

Hi - very nice and neat. Did you 3D print the housing for the dimming boards? I am looking for something to house mine in and also my joystick Leo board to prevent a short circuit on the underside.

Nice project!

Yes I did 3D print them.
