    I got my switch panel in my overhead console fixed by repairing the ground connection. Now its done and everything is working. The only thing left to do is run the wiring for the accessories to the switches and hook stuff up.

    The lighting is tied into the dash light circuit, so it comes on when the dash lights are on. The power is pulled from the constant power for the homelink and map lights, and will only be used to trigger relays that will power the accessories so nothing is overloaded.

    I used the method used on this site for creating custom gauge faces to design the custom panel. I mounted that layer onto a layer of acrylic plastic and used epoxy & JB weld to mount everything to the inside of the console.

    The site I linked to in my post above has a how-to on making custom gauge faces using transparency sheets and paper printed on a laser printer. I have to give that guy huge credit for giving me the idea of how to do it. I did that, but without the color layer. I just used blue LEDs to light it instead.

    I used Adobe Illustrator to design the panel and add the icons, which I took out of one of the brochure of possible markings for Carling Switches. Then I just glued that part to the acrylic plastic layer and cut the holes for the switches.

    Here's the link again, just for good measure. http://www.revlimiter.net/mods/gauges.php

    Updated the software for my Kenwood DNX7180 navigation unit. Now I'm in the process of downloading the most recent map files from gpsunderground so that I can have a more current map version. The ones that garmin releases for Kenwood units are always a year old, and they charge $70 for it. By using the nuvi files which are updated a few times a year and people have unlocked them so you can use them without paying to unlock them, I can get the most recent map versions and not have to pay for it.

    I got a set of All Terrain mats yesterday for cheap so I cleaned the interior today. This pic is precleaning.

    Sometimes the best part of my job is that my chair swivels.
