Default Upper dash

Finally replaced the original, obsolete upper drivers side dash in the FC. With the new TV blocking the old monitor and with the new radio being moved down to the main dash most of these items and spaces became obsolete. The Safeline with 2 indicator lights and switch were an overkill too so a new, neatly layed out upper panel was in order. As with my other new to the FC A/C, D/C generator panel this one was fabricated out of the same high gloss acrylic sheet. The cutouts and screw holes as well as the periphery were laser cut while the engraving I CNC milled. The engraving is filled with white laquer paint. Nothing is now hid behind the TV and the new backup camera is two channels so I get a close up and long rear shot. I am very pleased with the results, greasy finger prints and all

Hey Ryan nice job ! When you removed the rt. side overhead gauges did you save them ? I am in need of an "ac voltage" gauge. If you would be willing to sell one I would like to buy one. You can contact me by "PM or call at 502-751-8927" TOM
