    Now I am busy with the airflow through the space of the electronics.
    This space has since become a lot smaller because the entire sim has been lowered by 30 centimeters.

    After a while of not working on the sim I started again.
    I have purchased a new 32 "monitor for the sim which only does not have a Vesa mount to attach it to the steering column of the sim.
    Fortunately but otherwise it would not have been a challenge for me :)

    Here are a few photos of the rough carpentry.
    Apply a thin layer of MDF over this woodwork so that all screws and bumps disappear.
    Then sanding, filling, sanding, filling, sanding, priming, sanding, spraying, sanding, spraying, sanding, spraying.
