Looking great Ragtop. That seat looks like a good fit/choice.

Some picture of Icemaker pit, taken at the "mondial de la simulation" show in Paris/Le Bourget last weekend. Sorry for the poor quality, it's taken with my phone, in a hurry...

Beautiful! Looks great. Thats tempted me to have a go at the CMSP too, looks like a fairly simple one until you get to the display!0

Dime, can you recommend a good place to get the landing gear handle... one that can light up?

Will post my latest pics...

I almost finished my left side consol.
I even made a Landinggear switch And due to it being a landing gear I stuck a radio-controlled airplane-wheel on it

My biggest problem is that I use my computer to a racing to, so I cant make it as low as it is on drawing! I increased the height by 150mm due to my seat is on top off my computer!! So I cant go lower
So I will NOT build the front of pit, its in the way for racing...
Maybe I will half the right side, or I gone have problems to get out of my seat... Need to move it...
My desk is about 900mm over floor so I got some limitations to everything.

Of course all holes on top is countersunk with marginals to fasten nuts whit a tool! Deep is about 2mm and hole width is 20mm for 12mm switches and 12mm for 6mm switches!
A switch is about 7-8mm in high, so you need to make sure the tread is enough up on top so you can screw the frigging nut on it.
Underneath i make the holes as big as the switches base is. About 30mm on big switches and 16 on small.
First I did saw out a frame, but that was no good, better is to drill hole for every switch, then you got a sturdier frame!

Haha, I'll be tackling that soon too! Hopefully I can find a solution haha, I'm thinking an arm from the wall on the left might be a good idea.

dimebug!
Excellent work!!
Wish I could do it to....
Is all your knobs and rotary working???

I made my gear lever of an thick aluminium profile that I bend with great force...
Then I stuck it true the wood and made a solution in the back using a bolt to hold the leaver, I used some rubber spacer to make it hard to move! I control the hardness if I loosen or tighten the nuts.
I use a on/on switch that goes in a hole in the aluminium leaver with a o-ring to make it smooth.
I had to mount the switch very close to the bolt or the movement was to big for it.
Look at pics! sry for bad quality of pics!

Sry Ragtop!

I am still lost in space when it comes to read and learn.
Need pics and drawings

I'm hoping to build the center console, but some of the plans do not have the angles of the cuts on them, just measurements. How do I go about building this?
