Cool F-650 Dash Mod, and more...

Went ahead and painted most of my dash components...Super impressed with the outcome, I love it. Big thanks to member OBS for suggesting the black satin finish, it came out awesome.

So here's some before and after, and note the switches are in but not wired. That will be for another weekend lol

before:



after





EDIT
Finished all the wiring! And added a few more switches and a 12V outlet

Very nice! How hard is that to do and about how much does the piece cost?

Fairly easy...the cupholder and ashtray need to come out to install it, but it's really simple. Fabbing the switch brackets isn't too bad, just need to measure and cut the dash piece, then glue (I used PL premium) the brackets in place, and paint it whatever color you want... I guess half a day's job. Toughest part is tracking down an F-650 dash...
