If I remember correctly, my lower switch panel is factory installed with 4 screws on the corners. Could you bend up the sheet metal to fit that "bolt pattern" and screw it in (don't know if the early tjs were the same)?

i was wanting to semi-permanantly build the switch panel into the dash bezel so that wouldnt work. but it seems like it may take a lot more work to get it like i want so i may just epoxy it to the dash bezel and if i ever need to change it i will just have to replace the whole dash bezel.

Did you already cut out the ashtray spot? Could have screwed it to that. That's how my switch plate is, but its only half the size. (Takes place of the ashtray)

The front axle looks good. Is the jeep ready to wheel?
