Custom Carling Switch Panel

I have been doing some research and I am not sure if anyone has posted this information but I found a way to 'custom' build a Carling switch panel.

http://order.waytekwire.com/productd...NTING%20PANEL/

http://order.waytekwire.com/productd...20-%20REVISED/

It looks like these are less than a Daystar panel and might add more flexibility.

Love you brother and you will always be my hero!

I am pretty sure. That opening is for the Carling rocker switches.

I am running a 2 gang version of these for my winch switches. They look nice when installed. I'll try to post up some picts if anyone is interested.

They are good switches. The bad part is that they require a little more room to put them in. The good part is that you can buy the in a water proof config.

The links are correct. I bought the pos Bestop overhead console and wanted to make something useful out of it. So I used the these to make this.

Is that what the gaskets are for in the catalog? I wondered if they were needed or not. That makes sense that they are there to make the switches weather resistant.

I really don't think this looks bad, it's what I put in mine. Custom stuff usually looks cooler though. What ever you do I'm sure it will look great. Pushing buttons is fun.......

My issue is that I have a 6 speed manual and the feedback I have seen is that Daystar panel does not really work well with the 6 speed.

yeah but the reason it doesnt work with the 6 speed is because of the bumpout
the bumpout isnt just for looks - theres no room behind that panel

if youre planning on just sinking some carling switches into the stock flat panel using those bezels, it won't work.

I have not looked at the design. I read that there was a weather proof opt.
