Well here it is, I started about 5am, finished it at 7pm. LOL but i took a 4hr nap between so ya. 15 minutes? who ever thought it took 15 minutes is smoking something.
thought id listen to the radio while doing this, needless to say that didnt pan out.
i figured since im doing this I may as well do the ashtray too. However for future mods I want easy access to the new panel where the ashtry is, in order to do that i hadd to remove the floor console, and the ashtray
heres the ashtray after i cut a square hole in the top of it with my soldering gun. I then sanded the edges smooth so its a snap to run wires.
here i am comparing the bexel i bought last year to mine. im in the process of shaving some things.... we'll see how that works out.
heres my new switch, picked it up at AZ for $2
heres the hole in the top of the ashtray
pre drilled the mounting points.
heres my lame attempt to shave a decal off the new bezel, if u got a better way im all ears
heres my fat hand, and im holding, would ya believe it? its the fog light wiring harness. i dunno where it goes but theres no harness in the front of the truck yet thats clipped on behind the bezel.
all finished - sorta. my radio isnt seated properly... man that was the hardest part getting that radio back into its hole. i was tempted to actually cut off all the extra speaker wires on it cause they were being a major pita.
heres my dirty truck that i havent cleaned out in like 2 months.
so ya it wasnt bad, the switch plate took awhile waiting for paint to dry. the hardest part was stuffing the radio back into the hole since it clearly wanted absolutely no part of that.
