Just got this back from Daniel, what do you guys think? Anything you would change?

The center section will stick out about 2.5" on the bottom, leaving plenty of room for all 3 shifters. The 9 square holes will be for Condura switches, and the one on the left will be a regular lever switch with a cover on it, for the radiator fan. The entire panel with the gauges and the switches is on a hinge, so that way I won't have to take down the entire dash to work on something, or crawl underneath and break my back.

Best part about the center section, it will let the defrost ducting stay completely intact.

That's pretty slick. Good call on keeping the pull cables in the stock locations, that is going to make life easier. What is the rectangular box above the column opening for?

Dummy lights! LEDs for turn signals, bright's, parking brake, oil pressure, water temp, and check engine.

Thanks for the input Mike, you helped convince me to use the factory cables.

Nice!......but won't you need a co-pilot all the time to reach those switches on the far right?

Pretty much. I've hired Kate Upton to fill that position.
