Currently everything hinges on getting this cutter calibration working right. (My kingdom for a laser cutter!) Have a call in from a company rep tonight to see if we cannot sort out our issues and get the first batch out. Ive got 4 printed and ready to roll in the 4 colors: Black, Digicam, Treadplate, and Carbon Weave.

Once settings are documented, then making them is jsut a case of printing, laminating, aligning and letting the machine cut.
(sounds a lot easier than it is... I wonder how many hours I have in these things so far...)

I think. I have to verify what this was used in, but am pretty sure the ZJ was the same cluster unit.

You'll probably shoot me for asking this Azzy. But being a Scot, I have to.
How hard would tartan/plaid be to do? You got digicam & carbon fiber....

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.

Just another teaser pic. Orders are going out for the betas this week, thank you to the group here at JF who are working with me.

Machine cutting is having... issues, but the manufacturer is working double-time to get them going. It just means production goes slower, as I need to send make these 1 at a time, instead of doing a batch.

Here is a sample of how the lighting looks...... Install vid coming this week for everyone.

Just ran across this thread today.......Nice!! I would like to see a final with the XJ and Jeep in the Idiot cluster style. I don't have the full gauge cluster and I don't remember seeing any other than on the first page. PM me with pricing and a pic, you will have an order. Thanks.

I havent developed that one much further due to lack of interest, but could. The only pic is the ones you see in this thread.

If I do get to making them, I will let you know. Right now I am concentrating on the more popular style.

I had the idiot cluster, swapped the premium cluster into it, now just waiting for that special mission package. LOL.
I may have to recalibrate my speedo gauge, i took needles off to paint, now i go 10mph faster, then actual.
