    So today I had a couple small jobs to do then I get a 2 1/2 day weekend. I came up with a few concepts, but eventually decided on one. I took your advice for painting from the back ( so thanks for the tips Ekei & Kaiser! I finally decided on this for a logo. It was pretty tricky taping and cutting it out, but was worth it to me. I had a friend suggest having the design cut into a sticker to save time on the taping and cutting, but I couldn't wait. Anyways, placing the design on the back I needed to mirror the image (option in most photoshop programs). Here is the image I made and used for my logo.

    Cutting these small details was really difficult, but I got it done the best I could.

    I can't wait to get some back lighting in there and see how it looks. I should be able to pick up the neon/s this week. I didn't have that great of a piece of plexiglass laying around, but I like it a lot more than having the stock console.



    In a hurry now, will update the how to asap. Until then...

    Looking pretty good there FrigginNoodles, yeah the laser cut decals are what me and Karz used, a local shop had them wiped up in no time. What till you see what is in the works now. I would recommend that whatever kind of light that you get mount it as close to the logo as you can otherwise it tends to wash out.

    Switch 1- Stereo (turns on my amps)
    Switch 2- Upper Fog lights in grille
    Switch 3- Lower Fog lights in grille
    Switch 4- Back lighting behind logo (once I have something else to put there, I will wire the lights to turn on when the truck is started)


    I got some of those flex-led lights from autozone and used the 3m tape to stick them right above the logo. The lights were $15. I do get some of the light leaking out from under the console by the windshield, but the logo lights up great. I can't wait to see what Kaiser & Karz have going now. Thanks for all the great tips. Today is supposed to be a wash out here in MA so if I end up with the day off (I work outside) I will be able to get the rest of the pics up and the write up finished.

    Yeah I have been trying to work out how to fix the bleed issue of the LEDs, Im thinking of lining the overhead with some black felt that might help the bleeding issue.
