    It would be great if someone would make a dash plate (above the glove box) which would light up the same way as the ones found on ''Limiteds'' BUT done in the correct grey for the GN!...(y)

    With a good idea (subtle, nothing tacky or overly ghetto import styled), some crafty workmanship, a trip to the art supply store, a spare dash panel, Lexan, and a Dremel and I'm pretty sure one can be made up by anyone with patience and half-ass art skills.

    Good winter project on a coffee table when your bored and sitting in front of a TV watching nothing important.

    I've looked into this. It's not easy. Was actually going to have the whole plaque cncd then do lexan with led etc. But if you don't have a CNC hook up just not worth it

    What did the world do before CNC machines?

    I know I could hand make this panel and make it well. I'm just not sure it would look great in my car because I've got way too much stuff already and it's beginning to look like a friggin Christmas tree!

    But I don't think anyone would pay for my time to make one. Or anyone's time to make just one. If it's not mass produced it's going to be expensive either way. Whether it's done by machine or by a craftsman.

    I wish I knew you wanted one as winter was about to begin. I may have taken on this project just to see how good it could come out. Unfortunately I don't think I'm going to have any extra time on my hands in the foreseeable future. I would've been happy to have you feature a part made by me. And I wouldn't dare give it to you to install unless it came out absolutely perfect.

    Winter is when I always choose to do all my silly little arts and crafts projects. You know the ones. Just look at all the crap I've built for my car. I get cabin fever and have to do something or I start climbing the walls.

    BTW. Have you spoke to Brian? Or Jack this week? If not, give him a call.
