So it is for me. I’ve begun prioritising the remaining work into red, yellow and green categories. Things like the MCDU, transponder and radio are in the red category, while the green category holds things like the cockpit door panel etc. I’m getting there, but as new panels get added, I’ve discovered a new problem: knobs.
