Well, I havn't got that far yet.
I just put in 2 new offroad lights up front and 1 in the back and I have a ford torus electric fan that I'm going to put in, so I think I can find the switches a home.:toothless

offtopic, haha.


Bronco is slowely coming along, ive been busy as hell with school and such so its not moving much. Im hoping to have it smogged by friday then register it. Then Ive got the water pump to change, try to find a leak, and deathwobble.

Im trying to get it to hollister at the end of this month.

And good luck with the camaros, owners think they can get a metric ton of cash for them these days.

Nice! Where did you get it at?

Yep, It's a West Marine switch plate. It's the first one in the pic.


mostly I just wanted to see if I could make them fit. I had to cut that marine plate down quite a bit (it was a 6 switch plate and had room for the switch names ) I had to move the over drive switch over, you can see the epoxy that I put the o.d. switch in with in that pic, but it's cleaned up now. I was shooting for it to look some what stock. I am going to paint the screws black, I think that will help. I made it on the ship when we where on a trip and this is the cool thing that I did. I took the plate with out the switches in it down in the engine room and painted it black and I used a pretty heavy coat of paint. I the placed it on the port engine were it couldn't fall off but it but rattled around a lot and it worked great. It came out like glass (I put the lazer on it and it's temp was 140 f.)

This comment in itself was offtopic as it had nothing to do with his switches:histerica:thumbup

JTG, can you take the switches out of the plate, this may be the way to go to mount em on the diamond plate.
