    So I Have 2 gutted 737 Cockpits...

    Here are the pics I took today. Sorry for the blurry ones. I was in a hurry lol. We also got a MD-80 for giggles
  2. As the title says, I just got 2 new (or old I should say) 737-400 cockpits from a scrap yard today. Me and my boss already have a crew striping the undersides and panels of all the wiring and plumbing. I plan to turn at least one of these beauties into a full size simulator running PMDGs NGX. All of the panels have had the gauges removed at the yard. So my plan is to cut the appropriate size holes in the panels to hold the NGX screens. Now this will be the first time Ive attempted anything of this magnitude. I have built small "cockpits" using off the shelf saitek stuff, and I did go to school to work on computers, so I've got the basics covered. If yall could, Im looking for advise and/or wisdom on a couple things. Mainly, what equipment and hardware to use. If possible, I would like just to "drop in" a complete overhead panel, fmc, auto pilot, etc. Another thing I need insight about is how to link the controls to servos or something for the stick, rudder, trim, and throttle quadrant. And help would be appreciated. Ill have pictures up hopefully by tomorrow. Thanks :smile:
