Finished my digital dash up a few weeks ago. Talked to my upholsterer the other day and he will do my bolsters and other cushions early spring after my Mustang interior.

Pretty much. They are 19mm (0.748") switches. I drew the letters and layout in CAD and then laser cut the holes and laser engraved the the lettering.

I had a friend at work cut and engrave the dash for me. I did not have my laser at the time. After I got it back I purchased a laser the next week. Hers is a CO2 laser and mine is only a diode laser. Mine will engrave white acrylic, but has trouble cutting through white. Black, blue green, gray and others is not a problem for me to cut through.

Also, the switches are either momentary or latched dependent on what they are turning on/off. Also, the ignition are higher amperage switches.

They use Rule "Smart Technology" and power on every 2.5 minutes and sense for resistance. Also cutout new high temp silicone exhaust seals.

Where did you get those stainless exhaust rings? I have not been able to source one with four holes, they all seem to have three and my original ones were four.
