It is capable of receiving the GPS signal, though. So, I'm contemplating whether or not to hook it up using the electronic sender that I already bought, or buying the Autometer GPS module, and running it off of that. As of now, I'll probably just use what I have.
WSS, that's the coolest dash I've seen. As far as the console, I see stereo, CB & ????. HAM? VHF?
Ya, ham. It's a tri-band. 2m/440cm/ and 6m. It is a oldie. Way back 10-12 years ago 6m was pretty popular cause the sun spots. You could be between two mountains and talk to people in another state for a few minutes, then hear no one. It was lots of fun. I had it mounted the same way in my Scout.
The dash itself did not take too long to do. The planning and gathering started back in November. Once I had all the stuff together, it went pretty fast. I did have the advantage of a CNC plasma cutter. You can see the whole process on the last few pages of my build thread.
The winch control is two switches, kind of a redundant safety feature. One is just a dpst (one side for indicator other for 12v power) and the other is momentary ON-OFF-ON switch. It is un-nerving to hit the control and have the winch turn. Of course we would always have a spotter or navigator doing the rigging LOL. It was real simple on my Warn xd9000i, two wires and and two scotch locks.
An also in the process of reorganizing the front wall of my cab. What is waterslide printing? Labeling has been a major hang up for me so far. And I will be finding your thread as that is a beyond impressive dash!

They are printed as a photo on this paper then clear coated with a krylon or rustoleum and cut out with scissors then dropped in water until the back seperates or "slides" off, then it is essentially a sticker ready to be placed were you want it.
