Patriot rocker switch panel

So i would like to put in a switch panel beneath the radio in that little compartment. Any ideas on how to go about this, I have a few ideas of my own, but i am welcome to more!

So far i thought about cutting out some ABS plastic and somehow using L-brakets to mount it flush with the rest of the dash....

....or Cutting it bigger and screwing it to the dash... lazy but much easier.


any other ideas?

Not lazy enough...
Use two-sided tape to fix it into the place, no screw-holes after removing later, easier to install, etc. Probably must use some kind of brackets to keep the tape out of sight / not visible.

Urr- Whatever i happend to need to be switching, Lightbar, extra for lights/offroad lights!

for me the switch panel will be more useful then the little space!

you are right, i thought about double stick tape, then decided it isnt strong enough and that it will push the panel even further away from the console, leaving a gap!

Try the 3M Super Stick Molding Tape. Just make sure the surface is clean! It works on re-sticking window visors too
