The Ercoupe panel isn’t hard. 3 Garmin GI 275s will replace almost everything. You could dismantle the old one and just copy it.

I just purchased old stock pieces for my Alon to duplicate from Vernon Gregory to keep my aircraft in service while I fabricated their replacements.

The 3 piece Alon center panel is more difficult. The center panel requires bending and TIG welding to fabricate the replacement The outer panels are simple

I have been thinking about cleaning up the panel in my Ercoupe. It's not only ugly, which I could live with since ugly is cheap, it's also hard to see the instruments way off to the side.

Instead of purchasing the blank panel from Univair for $450, I'm thinking of laying a piece of blank aluminum over the entire panel, and cutting new holes where I want them.

Is that what you meant when you said "reface" the panel? How hard is it?

Book came in today Warren thank you! Brings back memories, my dad had similar books from when he was a kid in the 1940's. The photo of the panel is absolutely perfect is that from your 'coupe?, It's a good reference to restore Tweety's, very much appreciate these sir!
