Switch mounting idea

So i had an idea for mounting switches...get one of these ( Autometer Image ) and plug up the holes with these ( http://www.dieselmanor.com/isspro/R7614.asp ) and drill into them to mount my ebpv switch, and my chip switch when I get it and possibly a gauge in the last hole. Or do you think i should just man up and drill into the dash for the switches and forget the stupid under dash custom gauge idea? Thoughts/ideas/pictures welcome!

Re: Switch mounting idea

I have seen a pic of a ts switch and one toggle mounted in the lower cheek of a pillar that looked good. I just mounted mine in a blank spot on the dash to the right of my 4x4 switch..
I think that is either adjustable pedals or air. Ag disarm switch depending on model..

Re: Switch mounting idea

I opted to do the F650 dash (the automatic version) for mounting my switches. I polished up a stainless steel plate and put it over the large opening, and have switches mounted there. I have my tuner mounted in the recessed area to the left of the switches. If you're interested, i'll attempt to take a decent picture of the setup. All that being said, its pretty much just a home made knock off of the the one from riff raff.

Re: Switch mounting idea



I know the switches don't match right now, and that is due to me being busy/lazy. Once I finish my driving lights and fog lights I'll have everything wired to Carling switches. It also does not bother me that i have tan interior and the dash is grey.

If you have someone using the center front seat often, you might want to go with the manual version rather than the auto version. It does stick out a good amount....and leads to people hitting their shins on the dash panel. However, if you dont have anyone in that seat very often....the auto is a great choice. The switches are very easy to reach and very easy to see while you're driving.

The final thing is, I'm pretty sure that i got it from Stealth Diesel (I really don't remember though).
