Finally, all hardware arrived and so I'm ready to wire Startup and General panels.

What a mess, right?

But everything is connected "outside" through just two flat cables...so all of the wires will be hidden under the cover :)

To let the links easier between buttons/leds and interface cards (USB keyboard and Opencockpit card), I made simple interface boards, one for each panel.





All wired, power up...the panels take life :)

In the next step I'll do some tests about all the functionality.
