    Sharing latest Top Panel add-on:
    I've posted this topic on a Facebook group as well so if you have already seen it, just ignore this one. Top panel job done. This project, in particular, is an important add-on (for me personally) in order to achieve very immersive visuals and experience. Must admit been going through some serious frustration, trails and errors, spent so many dollars because I did not really know what I was doing and so there was a huge learning curve. It may look simple and easy but that wasn't the case. I failed so many times, wasted 3 MDF panels, 2 cans of glue, 3m carpet, 6 cans of spray paint, got bashed by wife and more...

    After all that bullcrap I've worked it all out, cut to size and went to see an upholsterer for a good finish and look. The panel is supported by 3 hinges, 2 gas struts, Industrial grade synthetic leather/vinyl and a couple of extrusion profiles. Originally I wanted in black but it didn't look good from inside. Grey colour blended perfectly with the virtual rooftop and cannot be any better. The top panel is sitting 10mm above the monitors to allow airflow and eliminate heat. A few photos attached for your reference.
    Someone said sim project never complete, there is always something and its true.

    Note that for some reason my camera is showing brownish color instead of grey? Anyway you get the idea. :)
