STRATEGIES
The Problem :
This panel is too high by about 1/4" nor do the mounting holes line up.

The challenge is to make a unit of the correct size that fits between the rails.
The photos below show the panel build as supplied by Hispa Panels.

Post Script files for the circuit board

Circuit Board

Circuit Board Mirrored

  • Get 4 DZUS replica bolts (PC Flights and Sismo both supply them).
  • Fabricate 1 new circuit board:
  • New circuit board for external connections including for lights and switches.
  • Cut down existing circuit board to retain the backlights.
  • Cut the SELECTOR SWITCH PANEL and back panel behind it to the correct size.
  • Fasten front and rear acrylic plates together.
  • Make an aluminum mounting plate to mount everything. Include openings for the PCB backlight connector.
  • Add spacers to aluminum plate behind the panel to mount the connector PCB.
