    Soltakr how did you mount that switch panel in the ashtray I have those same switches will they fit down in there or did you make a plate for them or what. I was looking at the one from harris but if I can make this work that would be great.

    In picture 2 it was this really tough epoxy, I donít remember the name. What I did was cut out the stock frame and built one out of carbon fiber. The problem was the frame was too thin to drive screws through. I though about adding some bridge work but the taper on the sides was too far and didnít have any anker points. Plus there is some stock electronic unit under that too. So I layered on the epoxy and through in a few carbon fiber spins to give some to grip and it worked. Looks like ass from under side. I use I could of trimmed off the fat and painted it but I was just glad it worked.
    In picture 4 I used just a flat peace of carbon fiber and cut out the stock wall on the console. I left my some a little bit of edge on the stock unit to give the carbon fiber panel something to stick to using 3M tape all the way around. First I measured where I wanted the switch, gauge and bottom. Cut the temple and then polished out the c/f panel to give it some shine. Mounted in the new stuff and finished off with some quick disconnect wiring.
