Are you going to cover the switches? Looks almost unfinished.

No, idea of this was to make it easier to access. My old switches would get caught up behind my new hurst shifter.

If you dont look at it from straight up, there pretty hidden

That switch panel looks kinda hood. Not trying to hate or anything maybe it looks better in person.

I would suggest sanding down the edges that you cut, maybe fixing the little marks from cuts and what not. then i think it'll look great.
But its a great, Idea.

Not a bad idea, but the execution could have been a little better IMO. I agree with the previous statements. Looks unfinished. Taking a little more time and care cleaning up the edges would go a long way in making it look better.

I like it! My grille LED's are controlled by a box underneath the dashboard. It would be nice if I could put them in my overhead console like you did.
