STRATEGIES
The Problem :
This panel actually is the correct size, however the bolts holding the front and rear panels together interfere with the mounting rails.
The distance between the mounting holes is about 1/16" shy of the 5-3/8" needed.

The challenge is to eliminate the interfering bolts and fix the mounting.
The photos below show the panel build as supplied by Hispa Panels.

  • Get 4 DZUS replica bolts (PC Flights and Sismo both supply them).
  • Purchase (expensive) or fabricate 4 - 2" x 1/4" square standoffs.
  • Fabricate new circuit board for LEDs and back connector mounting panel. Separate the connectors for the Inputs (annunciators) and outputs (switches).
  • Fabricate aluminum plate, include openings for annunciators, and led's.
  • Drill holes in aluminum plate for mounting switches and standoffs.
  • Trim slots in back acrylic plate to match mounting slots in front plate.
  • Mount acrylic plates to aluminum with bolts tapped into the aluminum plate (use existing bolt holes). Cut projecting bolts flush with aluminum back.
  • Cut thin aluminum panels and mount to standoffs.
