JvT,

Did you paint the panel with a primer of any sort before painting the grey?

The panel I have, (scroll up a little) is bare ali and has a few scratches on it. I will scotchbrite the panel to try remove them, but that will leave it with fine scratches over it. Am hoping that by applying a primer first, I can hide the scratches and then apply the top coat. Did you spay it from a can or from a spray gun?

I really like the grey

PS: panel not grey but more off white to cream.

Thanks Jv. Never too late to reply.

I like the Ipad mini in AXT - I have been considering this route as apposed to installing a panel mount GPS.

Actually I use a Garmin Nuvi, for plane, car and on the bike, that i loaded with eNUVspace from Andre Claassen and it works 100% and cheap compared to the new Aviation GPS'e. I mounted it to the "pipes" in the cockpit with a "fiets" mount that I bought from New world in Menlyn. The mini I pad belongs to Mark, the new owner of AXT, you can pm him, MMW her on Avcom. It does work very well and it's not an I-Pad, some other make and way cheaper.

Don't worry you will get it done, just work when you can and take it day for day.
