Nearly done mods

As I posted earlier, I was fed up with trying to figure out which switch in my stepwell was which. So I moved all of them except for the 12V Salesman's switch up next to the copilot's seat. This is the result. The only thing left to do is figure out how to wire the step cover switch. That is why the old one is in the new panel. I had a clear acrylic panel laser cut after I had spray painted it matte black. The letters were laser etched and I hot glued an electroluminescent strip to the under side.
Additionally, I moved the stereo to the dash for better visibility, modified the old console and added a Silverleaf VMSPc.

I am trying to work with a local company to get some panels made. The one at the entry next to the door is a common one and often the corners break. I suspect I could get several made.

What was the price of the one panel if I may be so bold?

The shop I used charged $50 to laser cut and etch the panel. I bought the panel from Tap Plastics for $10.
The panel in the stepwell was $1.00.

Myron - Are you implying a 'group purchase' of panels?

The shop I used would have cut another duplicate panel at no charge if I provided the material. The $50 fee is basically the first hour of work, so many could be done for one charge if completed within the hour.

Myron,

I would definitely be interested in a replacement panel (near the door). All my corners are broken and it's barely hanging on.

Thanks, Brian.
