    Asid, you have come to the right place! Building a C172 is awesome and should be very easy with a little bit of money, a lot of patience, and tons of time!

    The good thing is that there are many alternatives to building a GA cockpit and the variations are almost endless to how you can set it up. Do you want to build an older-style 172 with all analogue gauges, or the newer style with the Garmin G1000 avionics? Either way, you are all set!

    Hi Asid,

    You have chosen a great plane to get started with in your cockpit building.

    There are a few of us here building Cessna's or other small GA planes. Ask away.
    First step, Go through the photo gallery and get some ideas.

    There are a few sites that provide a lot of background for cockpit building. You can find links to them here: http://www.mikesflightdeck.com/getting_started.htm

    You can also find links to C-172 projects here: http://www.mikesflightdeck.com/simpit_links.htm . It's about halfway down the page.

    And of course, there is a huge amount of help here at MyCockpit for the asking.

    Welcome to the hobby.

  11. Thanks Asid thanked for this post
