Panel Dimensions for Q200

Corbin
 

Does anyone have the dimensions for the panel; assuming there is a standard?  Or a clever way of measuring without taking it out?  I would like to start planning an avionics  upgrade...slowly.

To Sam’s point about removing/replacing cylinders;
I would like to share an excellent podcast from Mike Busch, well known A&P. I think this will clear it up.

I have a box of knobs. What diameter is the post?  Is it similar to a radio knob ( types I have) or is it something larger that you need for torquing?  Would a handle like a window sill
crank be more appropriate?

I think it just looks like that in the poor quality photo that I took.  It went back  on just fine and that is the same length sticking out that it has always been.

Oh yea, you have to have a model before you can print. Or maybe you can download one from a knob vendor.
