Update on the dash pocket replacement panels.

I received the screws today and they're the wrong size. I ordered the correct size today so I should have these available by early next week.
I have everything else waiting and ready to go on this piece.

That looks so much better than an empty sammich tray. I think I have sammich tray PTSD. So glad you found the right hardware because it those switch slide out on to the floor when I punch it, I would loose it 😄

Should I include a version of the dash pocket frame that covers the entire face with a thin sheet of plastic, allowing the user to cutout each corresponding switch slot as they need it? It would/should give a cleaner look to those of you who dont have or need 4 switches in their dash.

Have you made any custom ashtray switch panels to accommodate the original FJ60 switch size?
If so, how many fit and do you have any pictures? Thanks

Ive had a few people inquire about the FJ60 switch size, but because of their unique size and scarcity I have not made a version for the stock FJ60 switches, only the FJ62. If I were to make one it may be a few weeks before I could get to it. Id imagine I could fit 4 on the ashtray panel but that's a complete guess. Do you have other extra FJ60 switches?

I have an OEM FJ60 foglight switch and several FJ60 rear defrost switches

I added the screened in option, It will have the same surface finish as all my other product, the picture is just for reference. This was a suggestion by a buyer that I think was a great Idea!

The Carling x4[Screened] Option is the same as the Regular Carling switch face, except a single layer of plastic is printed over all the Carling slots. This allows the user to have a clean blocked off look if they don't have all 4 switches filled in the switch face. The screen is thin enough to be cut out with a knife or pushed through by hand for easy expandability.

If anyone has any suggestions on how a product of mine can be improved or a product that needs to be created, Please reach out. Most of what I sell was based off of the community's ideas. If I think you have a great idea and make something that you suggested I'll make you that thing for free provided you supply me with all reference material I need to create said product and provide me with feedback once you receive it. You can either post it here or PM me!

Hey Chase - Great work on these. Two thoughts come to mind, but of course feel free to disregard. I would buy both, and am happy to send you my removed seatbelt light panel for #2 below if that would be helpful.


#1 - Re: Fj62 HVAC panel - Is it possible to do a cutout for the 80 series front/rear locker switch (PN 84725-60020)? Seems like a good spot for it.

#2 - How about an indicator light panel that fits in the spot below the tac in the center of the instrument cluster? On my 62 the only light is the seatbelt indicator, and there are 2 screws holding it in. Not sure if the 60 is a good candidate for this or not. Seems like a great piece of unused real estate to me.

Newvintageusa.com sells something similar for reference. Link
And the indicator images have been discussed here as well. Link

I like the Dif lock switch idea, I would just have to get one in my hands or know the general dimensions first to see if it would even fit.
The indicators would be tricky as the FJ60/FJ62 already come with most the indicators they need, Unless you add after market lockers but the switches already light up. However, I could try and recreate the FJ62 Seatbelt housing and add variations for another indicator of the users choice?

Cool. I'm happy to send you a diff lock switch, or front you the purchase price of one. I'll PM you.

Re indicator - your last sentence is exactly what I was thinking. But, I might be the only weirdo who wants the 80 series diff lock switch with indicators in that space...
