Got the final panel in from Innotech Products right before Christmas......and now the dash is finished. Unfortunately I had to take these pictures inside and after dark.

The panels are vibrant red and look great......need some daylight photos.

If anyone is looking for something like this give Steve a call. He was really easy to work with and did a great job for less than I was expecting.

Military rockers? Are you talking about the drive and tab switches. Steve had never done one like mine/ours with the threaded studs on the back of the panels. He made one of me that would have worked if my panel was more recessed. I told him I'd like it made thinner for a better fit and he was willing to try it again for me......the second worked great.

The latch was another issue. I gave Steve the spec's for the two studs but I missed measured something. I ended up cutting off what he made and then cut off the entire stud/bracket off the factory main dash panel the re-use. I mounted the main dash panel without any gauges installed and reached through the tach holes to hold the old mounting bracket while some 5 min epoxy dried long enough to stay put......once that was dry I installed everything in the panels and the back into the boat.

Looking at an install soon?

Very, very nice! I have those carbon fiber panels on my AT, in blue. Definitely get some photos in the sun to really show them off.
