Default Check out the new dash

Ok, here is how it sits right now. I like the look, I don't know how it will be when sun is hitting it as it's cold and ****ty here still!

Let me know what you guys think.

Here is the old one first. Next pic is the new look.

Thanks guys, I thought I'd throw up another pic of the switch panel, my buddy did a great job. The panels need a good cleaning as you can see in the pic but the whole boat does still.

Oh, and lotoparty ... Thanks, and NO!

Looks good. I think you should fly out and redo my dash for me.

How was the lettering done on your switch panel? It looks great. That's one of my projects for the year, but I need to finish the interior first.

Mike ... that will cost you a bunch of beer ... Canadian too, not that watered down yankee swill!

Les, I had them done on a CNC boring mill. The lettering was done on the computer and then a software package translates it into code and it was cut in with a tiny cutter ... took a long time as the stainless is hard and you have to take really small cuts. Then the panels with lettering were sprayed with numerous coats of blue paint and then polished it off the panel so it would stay down in the lettering. I just hope it stays looking like that for a while, no big deal to pull the 2 panels and do every year though.

Fred, I'm sure yours will turn out awesome. I didn't fill all the stress cracks in like you did. That may be next winters project. I almost hate to get rid of the old girl when I've spent so much time working on it over the last year. Might have to keep it for paint and bigger power.

Did yours hit the paint booth yet?
