Wow that seams like a Lot of Money for such item, Half that price would be more reasonable, Especially with the Quality issues your have noted.

But lease you have a nice way to fill the big hole in the Fuse

Have you installed it yet, Assume it just glues in?

I sent it back. I'll build one for it. Already ordered the parts from Iflytailies. I was going to have to build new instrument panels at a minimum so I'll just do it myself. One of the glaring things that they did was paint the instrument bezels silver. I have never seen silver instrument bezels on any T-6 much less any other warbird.
$500.00 is the most I would pay for it.
