    I have no more a/c in my truck. So I decided to make a panel for extra gauges. I also made a switch panel for the plow lights and other accessories.

    I will post pics when I am done. That finish is called "engine turning" or jeweling. I do it on a Bridgeport Machine with a dowel and a desired grit.
    Takes a long time to do it too.
