I had high hopes for reverse-transfer labels for the instrument panel. I ordered a sample from Ambient Graphics, and they arrived while I was in Wichita. I tried part of the sample yesterday, but they don't seem to adhere very well to the finish on my instrument panel. Maybe I didn't get it cleaned well enough. I'll make one more try before I give up, but I fear I may have to go back to Plan A - silk-screening.

I really want to get the labels on the instrument panel before I rivet the outer parts in place. And that task is probably on the critical path. So I need to sort this out soon. I've got to create a computer graphics file with all the labels, as that will be the first step, no matter whether I use reverse-transfers or silk-screening.
