Etched Aluminum Electrical Switch Panels and Logo Plates 21 Feb 2018 06:37 #82316

Hey Rick,
In an earlier post on this thread you show a Feather Craft logo on a cutout of a feather (identified as item "F"). Is that a sheet of aluminum cutout and then etched?

They all look great. It is a wonderful thing to have the talent we do on this site. It is a great finishing touch to add something custom like this when restoring one if these boats...

I cannot wait to get my switch plate mounted...

The switch panels I've made so far needed to cover existing holes. If you're reluctant to drill any new holes in your pristine, unmolested dash ...and you should be, :hmm: there's other options:




This bracket mounts an OMC choke/starter plate under the dash. A switch plate could be mounted the same way. Naturally it'd be a bit shorter and wider than this, but you get the idea.

The center hole in these plates is a bit too big to accept one of Steve's Dash emblems, and originals can be difficult to find, so an alternative medallion is possible. The one pictured is relatively simple, but can have pretty much any text or logo you'd like.



I can do center medallions like these, including any custom text or logo, for $35 shipped.
