Mike count us in too please. My knees and back are shot and this would be terrific.
Thanks,
Lyle

Dale reports that the mounting hole exists on his 2007 front bulkhead, so it is probably a hole that was used for something else previously, and many Alpines probably have this 3/8" bolt hole. Drilling there otherwise would take a close quarters angle type drill.

Also, Dale reports there is no vertical support for the dash at this location, while mine has an angle plate holding the dash up while I sit on it trying to figure out why the TV cable from the non-HD sat receiver is HDMI (using up the only HDMI input for the TV so none is left for the DVD player); but I digress.
The support holds up the plywood under the dash, and the plywood has a carpet pad cushion between it and the plastic-formed dash. I can add this 1/8" plate support to the kit to help firm up the dash structure as long as we are in the neighborhood (I can't help w/the HDMI situation, sorry, but again I digress).

Looks like price will be about $145 powder coated plus shipping & tax as may be applicable; it would ordinarily take 3-4 weeks, but DRR9 will interfere w/that as we need to get on the road before the fabrication will be done; probably be about 6-7 weeks. For powder coat it will need to be all one color. Soooooooooo, anybody want to suggest a color off the Cardinal Powder Coat palate?

Emike, any color is fine with me. I probably will have mine chrome plated latter anyhow. Please add the dash support plate. Mine is really flimsy in that area.

Wayne- I don't think chrome will go well over powder coat, probably better to paint that one or send it out directly for plating. Lemme know your preference.

E. Mike, Any color is fine with me but if preference is asked I would like the T241-BK59
Black Texture Semi-Gloss
. I definitely want any form of support as the comment you made about sitting on your dash is unimagineable in my coach. You would only sit on mine once. Again any color is okay with me. Let me know what kind of money you require. I can give you a UPS # or just have it shipped whatever except US Mail as it may never be seen again.

Again Mike, thanks for all your help - AGAIN.

Emike just do mine the same. I figured I could remove the powder coat with chemical remover when I get back to AR. Not that I care but the Rust textured semi gloss may be close to the wood look trim panels in the same area.

Using the photo below, so that there is a better chance of matching colors on the computer, I would pick the T064-BR24 Bronze Hammertone Semi-Gloss to match the "wood" panels or the Black as Ted picked. The Rust color that Wayne may be very good, but I can't tell from the "computer: paint chips, it looks a little red to me.

I have the actual paint chips. Here is what I'm thinking.
The colors w/the word "hammer" or "hammetone" have some texture to the finish, which will hide dings or other imperfections in the metal finishing well, but none of the colors w/the exception of Beige Hammer T013-BG38 really match much in the vicinity. The bronze hammertone is a wee bit brassy.
We can either try to match some element up front, or go for something that is clearly different. WRV did that w/the black, which would have been fine if the finish was not chipping off. The Gray Hammertone T064-GR05 isn't as loud a difference as the black, has texture, and should wear pretty well.

Or, I could give the color chips to EngineerAnnie and she could put that womanly organ that senses color coordination to good use, and pick something that would keep the feminine population from reaching for the motion discomfort bag every time they looked at what the guys chose. Whadaya think?

Emike,
Put me down for one, too. Whatever color is fine.

I vote for engineerAnnie! I gave up on color choices many years ago.

E. Mike, how about you choose the color and then down the road when the signifigant other complains we can just tell her that was the only color available. If it really becomes an issue we can blame it on you.
