Another quick update and some neat pictures ....

today i worked quite hard .... slightly modified the left and right side of the main instrument panel ... as there was not so space to fit the TFT displays ... i had to make some "CUT"
It took 45 dremel's blades to make the two cut ... damn .. have to find a quicker and cheaper solution .....
Then i riveted the leg's protections panels to the instrument panel ...
I will use them to place the VGA boards of the TFT display .....

Then mounted some stuff to see how it looked ... and here's the result !

Hey Davide, looking good!

I used to chew through those Dremel cutting disks too then Hack told me to try their heavy duty disks.  Since I've switched to the heavier disk I've broken only 2 whereas before I would have broken dozens.  If you're not already using them, give them a try.

I'm at the office now but I'll get the part number when I get home (unless someone can beat me to it).  They resemble the standard cutting disks but they're a bit larger, have a more gritty surface and are much harder.

I think you are refering to the fiberglass reinforced disk? Yes, they do hold up much better than the small brittle ones.

Sorry for the delay Davide.  The part is the #426 Dremel Reinforced Cut-off Wheel.  These babies will cut and cut without splitting (at least for a long while).

Guys,
today Jay helped me to take back to life an IP-1310/ALR.

I was following them ... and when read his message I suddenly dropped him a message ..... i was second on the list... but as we have the same display ... was quite easy for him giving me the right instructions .....

FIRST TEST:
Having the indicator display a single centered green DOT !
SUCCESFULL
(sorry for the blurry images .... the beam is clear and crisp... only a camera's problem)

Davide,
I love your Thread.
I capture all of your pictures as quick as you post them.
They are so good (clear and Crisp) and your pit looks so accurate too.
Your Thread is a good reference for what I want my pit to look like.
I am thankful for you and your dedication to post here.

Thank you for the well wishes too.

Dunk
I love the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Ferrari F1 of fighter jets.

I love the Viper - a perfect melding of man and machine.

You know Strale...  I have always said that you are crazy for spending all that money and time trying to build a 100% real cockpit.  But I can really see that your dedication and money has paid off!

Great work
Jody
