    looking forward to seeing it, i have ordered the buttons for my armrest and begun making a plywood model for it. I think i will try testing just plain old clearcoat from a spraycan on some buttons before doing the whole install.

    I'm still working on it. Cold front moved in and rain on weekends has slowed me down (very strange for FL) plus new job has me working during week during daylight hours. But I do promise to take pics as I put everything in.

    those letters look like a great solution! they'd probably even respond well to backlighting. and it's so freakin cheap, i won't feel bad if i screw it up! thanks for the link!

    Hark - my lack of updates has been cuased by everything hitting the fan all at once: moving, changing jobs, car breaking down due to botched repairs by dumbass mechanics who touched it before i bought it (though i must admit, their botched repairs lasted 60k miles) and the big kahuna of them all: saving up for an engagement ring.

    glow in the dark is something i'd expect to see maybe in 1970 or even earlier. i'd front light the panel before i ever considered glow in the dark. but hey - to each his own...
