Probably my favorite rendering done yet, Looks like the real thing!

I dont need a bunch of switches.. I need a place for my phone :rofl:

I’m in the same camp, but I prefer to have my phone plugged in. I have a USB port already installed in the switch blank above the ashtray but the cord then hangs out in the open to the center console. If I had a cubby to just stick my phone in that would be awesome.

I use silicone sleeves, so the phone won’t slide, but having a slight downward angle (if possible) would probably be smart.

Recently @c2dfj45 and I worked together to mount his custom engine monitoring LCD into an FJ60's dash. I'm really happy with how this one turned out as it gives the dash a clean transition from vintage to modern with out any compromise in the design aesthetic of the FJ60. This attachment required no permanent modification to the FJ60's original dash bezel and is completely reversible if one ever wanted to remove it (who would want to do that!).

I highly recommend checking out the build here

Love this setup.....so glad I found Cruiser Head so we could do this. We will be putting this together as a package for folks that want multi gauges in a clean setup. Can't beat it.

So got around to adding a dash bezel from CruiserHead.com. For those wanting to maybe see what one of these look like painted and installed, I thought I would include my install.

Before:

Some finishing work:

And finished and installed:

I am not sure how you could make this more OEM. The fit was excellent, and the paint match is outstanding even in my sun baked AZ truck. The switches fit in mine better than they did OEM IMHO. I added a USB socket to my setup using a stock switch location. On the OEM one the USB socket would slide out when pulling USB plugs out of the socket. With this bezel, the plug fits much more snug and stays put.

This is just a great piece and an unbelievable contribution to the Cruiser community. Just cannot tell you how long I have waited for someone to produce a piece like this for the purists among us. Just wanted to extend my thanks to @ChaserFJ60 for his hard work and dedication to bringing back long extinct parts to the market and keeping these old beasts looking great.

Thank-you to those who have been waiting on orders for your patients while I was studying and taking my Final Exams!
Today was the last day for tests and I plan to have all previously on hold orders set to ship out by this coming Monday seeing no anomaly's get in the way!
:cheers:

Some news about Cruiser Head.​


My goal is for Cruiser Head to not be a parts supplying company, but a parts Designing / prototyping / engineering company for the individual and small business. I personally find more enjoyment designing custom parts like the work Ive done with @RudigarP and his bezel and @c2dfj45 ash tray insert. I haven't listed other custom jobs Ive done but these are the most recent.

At this point in time my design portfolio is still very primitive and in the works but it can be seen here

I would also love to be a part of as many custom/prototyping projects as I can and I plan to do this in a few main ways
  1. I design the parts / objects to your specifications, working with you to turn your vision into a reality.
  2. You send me a ready made 3D file which I can provide 3D printing services for and consulting.
  3. You design the part and I 3D print it or convert it into a 3D format if needed
You can see my rates for 3D printing here at the bottom of the page

In 3D printing I can print up to 450x450x440mm in ASA Plastic.

According to my material manufacturer, the material I use [ASA] has the following properties​

Glass Transition Temperature​
97C or 208F
Vicat Softening Temperature105C or 221F
Young's Modulus (X-Y)2379 +/- 157 MPA
Tensile Strength (X-Y)43.8 +/- 0.8 MPA
Elongation at Break (X-Y)6.7 +/- 0.6 MPA
Bending Modulus3206 +/- 108 MPA
Bending Strength73.4 +/- 2.1 MPA
Charpy Impact Strength10.3 +/- 0.4 (kJ/m^2)

I also can 3D print small SLA prints with a different resin which are usually very precise but not ideal for most things which will be outdoors as they will get very brittle and break in the sunlight.
