  • Original 41 BC-12-65 instrument panels

    I have someone who has an original 41 instrument panel. The one with the insert instrument cluster, NOT the big tach version. These things are super rare and this one would be very easy to restore. I know what I would have wanted for the ones I made when I made a new one for my 41, but anyone have an idea of value for one now?

        Afraid I would never make another one for $250. It was WAY TOO MUCH WORK!!! Of course when you don't have one and really need one the cost pretty much goes out the window. A lot like the wood doors on my 41. NEVER AGAIN!! I love them and they are great, but they took WAY more time than I ever dreamed to build.

        Of course if my panel or doors were lost or destroyed I would change my tune and get started on replacements, it just isn't something I would do again for money. You have to remember, most of us are certifiably nuts.

          Nice job Hank!

          I like my panel I made years ago for Tami T-Craft for her Harer upgrade. It's been so long now that I have to rethink it , what with ADS-B and all........ but I still like it a lot. Then there's Teri T-Craft's panel, with the chrome insert and burnished inset behind the instruments......... I would like to see an original, not buggered up Model 19 panel. Looks like they added two instruments in the top row, running right through the curve, g-r-r-r-r-r-r!

          So many panels over time............ a "Plastic Panel" Paul? I'd like to see that............

              Anyone remember, years ago, someone made a run of "owner produced parts" instrument panel blanks and many found their way to members of the tribe. Anybody got pictures of what they did with theirs? Mine ended up as the panel above on the left. Who was that guy? and is he still around and able to make some more?............. it's been years...................

              Cheers,
              Jon

                  Jon may have been talking about David Wenglarz. Search "Taylorcraft Metal Parts by David Wenglarz" and you will arrive at a post describing some of his work.

                    If this panel is in ANY kind of useful condition that price is a steal!

                      its listed as a prewar panel, but its not. I think its home made postwar panel. I had them send pics but I guess I deleted them
