Hey guys, I've been on a temporary hiatus but I'm pleased to say that I am back in business. At this point I have all the parts needed to complete my control panel. Here are some photos of my latest progress.



Here is the top part JB welded and the screws sanded down. I just used an angle grinder instead of filing them down.

If you haven't drilled them yet, make sure you have clearance for the devices you plan for the two holes in the upper left hand portion of your control panel. It looks like they are very close to the hinges.

Excellent point. As a matter of fact, i was walking inside my house from drilling the holes when i read this comment. Doh! I reconnected my door and hinges, and attached the blue light and key switch. Fortunate enough, it cleared by no more than a few millimeters. Phew! Thanks for the heads up though!

I guess its too late but for the sake of others who read this before drilling, it isnt just about leaving space for the hinges & rubber seal.
You also need space for the wiring, which will come straight out of the component and cant turn for at least 1/2" My door barely closes without rubbing on the wire.

They are less than perfect, but have been test fitted and work fine. For the right voltmeter, I didn't have to add a second slot, it fit snugly like that. That's enough work for a Friday night, now to go out and have a beer on tap
