These are the steps taken to fabricate the Canopy Open Close Panel:

This replica part is a rare item…and to my knowledge not available thru any other source.

I purchased a Canopy Open Close Panel about 12 years ago.

Currently these panels are not available and are being crushed and recycled.

A CAD File of the 2 aluminum parts were finalized after several changes.

Parts were waterjet cut from thicker 08 aluminum metal.

2 Parts were bent to the correct shape.

One part had flush rivets installed to the front of the panel (located under the decal).

The 2 parts were connected with 2 rivets… installed at the bottom of the panel.

Then the 2 parts were powder coated (painted).

A replica decal was fabricated and installed on the front of the panel over the flush rivets.

A 3 position switch was installed it springs back to the center position when you release the switch.

This panel is all set to be wired up.

Then the part was posted on my website for sale.

Each of these steps involved several trips to different companies in order to complete this panel so all you would have to do is wire up the switch to your electronics board…and your simulator software.
