I dealt with the issue a little differently. I changed the aspect ratio of my 2D panels to make them widescreen compatible.
Most aircraft I fly now I fly in vc mode, but there are a few in which I still use the 2D panel. In those cases I modify the panel bitmap by trimming off some of the top or bottom or by adding on to the sides to make it 16x9. Then of course you must adjust the config, but I get a kick out doing stuff like that.
