Default Custom switch panel!

Hey guys i made a custom switch panel and i wanted to share with everyone!

I took my cubby picket and got a piece of acrylic cut it to size and contact cemented it on

Shaved down the sides and then got some jbweld plastics putty smoothed all the gaps and sanded and then painted i think it came out awesome!

Let me know what you guys think!!

Wish i got pics of the construction

I was thinking about doing the same thing, it looks clean like it came like that. Good job.

Looks great! I like the placement, too. Do your knees ever hit it there, though?

If you don't have a cubby you can do like I did and make a metal one off of the dash bracket. It bolted right up without any drilling
