Default Show us your Center Console

Hey gang, I was asked to start a thread similar to "Show us your Panel" for consoles.
Send us photos how you set up the console to assist our builders.

I plan on covering my center console with the carpeting that comes with the Kitfox interior kit. What is a good way to attach the label plates (flaps, trim, parking brake, etc.) to the carpeting?

embroidered the labels for the flaps. It gives a nice finished look.

That's looking great Dustin. I'm going to have to get over to take a look at that one of these days.

In talking to Paul Leadabrand, his new Kitfox has a carbon fiber cowl and he thinks it is too thin (but very light weight) because he is afraid that if he flexes it too much in normal handling the paint might crack. It is something to think about when using this new light but strong material. Strength is not the whole issue; deflection is also important.

Finally at the stage where I can answer these questions, in stead of drooling over the pic's of someone other's baby: here's my center console. It has connections for two 'old style' headsets and one Sennheiser ANR.
The pockets on the sides are quite small, but they are practical enough I guess - and beautiful, too!

Nice Hans. Did you do your own upholstery? How about the padded center console? Looks good either way!

Very nice. My major gripe about the console in my plane is the bruise that developers on my right leg after a long trip...
