Unfortunately, I don't remember their names off hand...I've used FS Panel Studio to extract, edit and replace c .gau bitmaps.I cannot recommend FSPS highly enough! It is a 'must have' for anyone who's serious about a/c and panel design.

GAU2BMP by Chuck Dome is the utility to work on just about any gauge. However, I have noticed that on "certain" gauges, you get a "subscript out of range" error when trying to extract replace.Still, it's the only freeware tool that will work on all C gauges.

Hi Barry,Yes, I agree with Bill. FS Panel Studio is a Must Have!! It really is great. I have done a rework of a Dash 8-100 panel for a Cargo aircraft for own use and I have found some really great looking gauges to give it that "round the world more times than hot dinners" look. And the author is a cool guy too. Which helps.
