I designed the faceplate and had a friend cut it for me. it's 3mm thick aluminum with filled in engraving. I chose blue because all the switch lights will be blue. and the aluminum also helps as a heat sink for the amp behind it and the radio which gets hot.
with how craptacular the stereo was and how convenient the location would be while strapped into a 5 point harness I figured it'd be a good start.
I've thought about designing some for selling THIS IS NOT A PITCH IM NOT TRYING TO SELL THESE
but if you're interested I may make a few more.
what do you think?
