Default painted dash panels?

Has anyone had new gauge panels made and had them painted? I had seen a few pictures of boats that had really awesome paintjobs on their dash panels and I knew one guy had mitcherT do his.. Any idea on what kinda cost that is to have something done like that?

$400 a few years ago for the panel and switch plate.

Yup, about that much. What was real nice was Mitcher T relabled all my switches after painting. My switches are just white and I was afraid I would loose the lables. No worries. He matched the boats graphics.

Before, after, and panels alone.

Just did this one last week, nothin fancy. I made a template and taped it to a sheet of 1/8" aluminum, and had it cut with a CNC waterjet, sanded with 80 grit, shot it with epoxy primer, then paint of your choice. I've got about $50 in it.
