    Okay, all switches/buttons, etc. are in, measurements verified, final design going to be cut out tomorrow! Remember that this first run is going to be out of clear acrylic, so it won't look as cool as the black, but I want to do a test fit of everything before I cut into the black stuff...will report with pics as soon as it's cut!

    Okay, so I got the prototype back to test fit. Had to dremmel a couple of spots, but all in all, it seems to work great! I am going to take the assembled prototype and see how it fits in the truck now....if all goes well, I will be sending the nice, pretty, gloss black acrylic to be cut the same way. The clear shows all the defects...the gloss black is gunna look great!! I'm getting pretty excited...anxious to get this thing in the truck!!

    For the sake of seeing how it will look with black plexi, you might shoot the back side with some black paint (like Krylon Fusion). If you assemble and install carefully -- without scratching the paint -- it will look almost like the black plexi, and it might even look good enough to use as is.
    .
    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    Cool idea..may have to test that out.

    I am going to have stand-offs, and mounting points on the back, so I'm not certain how it will look exactly. The black acrylic stock I have is really slick looking...I am just waiting for a perfect prototype so I don't have to dremmel anything.

    The acrylic is nice and glossy, and looks just like the image below (obviously without forming and text...its just a sheet right now).
