    How\'s this look Switch Panel in ashtray.......

    Here is a unit I made out of Stainless Steel and will probably make out of matching Alum. inserts like the Insterment Cluster, Dash, & Door Panel Inserts. [​IMG]

    Pretty cool. That's the same thing I did only I used a piece of dash out of another truck instead of aluminum. And I used a gauge and two three position switches.

    Can't tell if that drill bit is 36" long, or if it is just the picture. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    The picture definitely shows it in good detail. Good work! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: How\'s this look Switch Panel in ashtray.......

    You can see the Aluminum pate that is going to be cut to make it in the lower left corner. The pink paint is from when it was cut and didn't pass the inspection.... IT FAILED..... So it's mine......I never did find out who did it at work....But it matches my otther Aluminum pieces.

    Shaggy- I like the hands free unit for my cell phone, and it charges my battery fast.

    Tweetysuarus- Since I don't smoke it was eather using it for something else or weld it up.... I can always find a use for something.

    BlazerGuy- Hey it's always the eyes to go first. I didn't want you all to squint while you couldn't see what was done...

    Jekbrown- of coarse I'm going to mount those in the rear for power all over the truck... Building code says outlet every six feet........Just pulling your leg. just have them in the truck from work....

    Clubba68- The Concrete Drill bit is 36" long.... You passed your eye test.....

    Chevyfumes- Yah... Had to still that one back. But I've never used it to check the temp of meat, but A lot of grout was checked with it....
