Default Custom window

I decided to utilize the rectangular cut out area of my center console by purchasing a new trim piece and creating my own fiberglass window for my neon lighting to shine up through. What do you think?



P.*. - This is an older pic. I will have new pics to come of all of my mods soon enough... as soon as I borrow someone'* camera. haha. The new trim piece is a faux wood that I pulled off a 97 or 98 Bonne. Also, I have put more backing in behind the vinyl so it appears more smooth and dome like.

I'd put a small cage back there and keep a pet rat in my car... to you know... keep the thieves away.

pretty cool idea just need something behind it or etched into it so the neon catches the contours....

Send me a piece of acrylic (not plexi) the right size, and a CD with a graphic that you'd like. I'll laser-etch it for you, and send it back.

Offer only good for the topic author, who was the first to do this.

Or tell me the EXACT width, height, and thickness of your piece, and I have some acrylic here to do it with. Just like I did my CAI cover.

The etching with a neon behind it is extremely hot. Theres a few installs that have some wicked boxes//amp racks due to this. If I ever have room I want to do something like that... it adds a nice touch to a window and it'* the only time I'd consider buying any kind of neon.
