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
