Reasons to upgrade the panel

Recent years has seen the introduction of modern glass technology at a reasonable price for many aircraft owners.  The non-standard shapes and sizes of these instruments means that a simple swap is not often possible.  Older panels are likely to have deformed slightly and can become brittle. 

Refurbishing an old panel and replacement of the wiring allows the introduction of new technology and functionality, the improvement of ergonomics and efficiency in the cockpit and allow future expansion.
