The panel is being put back together on the bench. I found a few small problems with the wiring and am fixing them while it is easy.
I used a rubberizing paint on the panel to make it scratch resistant, insulated and glare resistant. So far I am happy with the results.
Using "The GIMP" I have been creating a series of concepts and variations of the paint job. Taking photos of the project the concepts have been laid over to help judge how it will look on the 3D plane.
