    almost done, just need to finish the cut-out for a CB next to the heater/ac controls.

    what do you think?

    no bling, just sanded aluminum.

    if it doesn't have a practical function, it won't be in this ride.

    Are you planning on putting any paint on that or just leaving the nice aluminum finish?

    Questions?

    Did you do away with the ash tray? So the open area of metal is for the CB?? What kind of CB are you going to install?

    here is another pic, this time of the back.

    as you can see I got rid of all the mounts and brackets as everything will mount directly to the back of the panel. I used the same holes for the original panel just made them a bit bigger.

    no paint, I like the way the aluminum looks.

    no ash tray either. I am going to use one of those smaller CBs. I think it is a cobra. not really sure yet, many choices.

    drill, jig-saw and lots of hand filing.

    That looks awesome. Where did you get the aluminum to do that? I would love to do that mod.

    I am planning to use the rest as trim on the new boogiedownnm custom door panels. update to follow.........
