I need more space, and SSEi dashes are simply full... I filled the console, and added things to the dash panel (heated seats and fog light switches). Here we go..hold on to your Aeroforces..
Our first pass... Doesn't look quite right yet, although it'll pass for a year or so, right?

More fiberglass has been added. It'* looking pretty good.

Though it'* not very symmetrical. I think we need 3 more on the other side. I'll add those while Bill is working tomorrow.

Looks good though.
