If you guys can't tell I tinted my turns and corner lights. Going to do tails as well. Will tape off for reverse lights. I orderd LEDs for all external lights. Other than head lights

Got all my cloth in. All LEDs in. Need a new bulb for my head light. Redo the headliner and replace some things that I have that need to go on. Then I should be done. Then it's on to some little things here and there. Going to add a junction block to run some accessories that I feel needed in the jeep on switched power. Going to get a garmin gps and the obd2 dongle for those. Might see about maybe making a A piller 2 gauge pod work in mine. Put voltage and the gps there. Then we're the vic is put a trans temp probably oil pressure and idk. Anything else I should keep an eye on? And then make a switch panel for we're the heated seat one is. I'll swap the od button over to the new one. And rear wiper. Because my rear wiper works.

Only thing I don't think I'll like about the Vic location is its to low and they probably won't be angled up. I'd like the Ac control location and I would put like sun shades on them but kinda angled towards pass side. Will Ac controls fit were the Vic is?

Just ordered 10 blue led button switches for the console project. Going to get a sheet of 16ga aluminum and some 1x1 square tube. Some gauges to put in it then get started on it.

I'm sorry but that looks like a mess, did you initially cut that hole in the console for your cigarette lighter adapter and it nit fit or something? There has to be a better place to mount that so it looks cleaner like on either side of the console closer to the dash say the passenger aide so its nit in your way? Or on your side below the four wheel drive shifter??

I was just playing around with ideas. That console was shot. It will never find its way into a jeep. And I'm actually just going to make my own. Will be a lot better.
