    Gear lever rubber lips

    Found a better way than the ugly rubber lips which let light through.
    Not the Boeing way...good looking though!

    Images are better than words.

    Couldn't you use a 'brush strip' (like draft excluders), and place either side of the lever wouldn't that be easier?

    If you want the lever to stick out as it should,there is no room for a brush strip. at least with this model of gear.

    Thats a good solution. But if you want to keep the realism couldn't you box off the back mechanism so no light can get in there to leak out?

    Hi Tom
    Not so for the light bleeding, but I find my solution more streamlined than what Boeing did. (Ask Tim. lol)
    Improving/modifying anything on a commercial airliner is an administrative nightmare for any aircraft manufacturer. A lot of items in the 737 are carryovers from the 60's and the 707, and are not always the latest best in ergonomics and aesthetics...We do not have that roadblock and can improve at will. (my 2 c)
