Started a little project

So I last year I installed an Exploder radio bezel that has the rear window wiper control in it.

So I removed the switch and the plastic display thing above it. I sanded the display down to the clear.

Cut off the little plastic circle that lit the switch.

(no pic) but i put on some letter stickers and painted over it.

I then pulled off the stickers and this is what is left.


I dont know if I like it this way or with the stickers still in place, kinda gives it a raised look.
I plan on doing the same thing on the 4x4 switch. because on the exploder bezel it says 4x4 auto instead of high, or i can put the one in from the pics.
Im planning on putting lights behind it so that it shines through the letters

What do you think

Looks like it could use some good ol' fashioned TLC though along with a paintjob


And this idea actually looks pretty darn neat, Will be interested to see what your coloring scheme will look like when its all lit up =)
