    I likw what you did with the light switch panel and the radio bezel. I have been trying to think of a way to make my CD player look a little cleaner. Good idea!

    That's a stock dash with no pad on it. Looks like he glassed over the holes and waves in the metal. I'm in the process of doing the same thing.
