ARC/Cessna Audio panel faceplate installation directions

Before you begin: Check to see if you received the proper faceplate insert. Are the numbers the same as your radio? Does it fit correctly? Although the holes and text will be the same, many faceplate manufacturers made different widths or heights of the same faceplate. (Just to make life a little more interesting)

  1. This faceplate insert is NOT PMA’d and CAN NOT be installed in US Certified aircraft unless the proper FAA paperwork is completed. The FAA is very strict on using non-PMA’d parts in certified aircraft. Contact your local avionics shop or AP for these requirements.
  2. Have this insert installed by an FAA certified avionics shop if the unit is to be installed in a US Certified aircraft. If you do not have all the proper tools, are not a qualified technician or your not sure you are capable of doing this job, seek expert advise.  
  3. If your faceplate needs painting, remove it from the radio. Otherwise, go to #10.
  4. Tape the back from any paint over spray. Do not tape the inside lip area as this has to be painted.
  5. Fill any dents with a plastic auto body filler or similar material.
  6. Lightly sand with a fine grit sandpaper for good paint adhesion.
  7. Paint the faceplate with a quality paint such as Krylon's® 1613 Semi Flat Black paint. If you want a silver border around the outer rim use a Testors'® silver paint stick. They are found in most hobby stores or at Aircraft Engravers.
  8. Remove the protective tape.
  9. The old decal MUST BE remove. This will let the light for the text to show through the new insert.
  10. Remove the double face tape backing from the new insert.
  11. Place the new inserts onto faceplate. Reinstall faceplate and knobs onto the radio.

We will give you a 100% refund of the purchase price minus any shipping charges for any faceplate that is returned to Aircraft Engravers. This is for any reason that you are dissatisfied or can’t comply with any FAA rules or regulations.
