    I'll put it right here.

    1) Spend several pre-work hours modeling the complex curves of the ashtray opening in Pro-E. Cutting out paper templates and testing them nightly.

    2) Send model file to the CNC programmer at work to program in his "spare time".

    3) Ask the photolab guy if I can use some of the extra space on the sheets of adhesive backed .003 thick photographic aluminum and have him shoot the image.

    4) Run a test run (photographic aluminum image stuck to the aluminum) and see how it looks.

    5) Stick the photographic aluminum image to another piece of aluminum and then run the "production" piece

    6) File to fit because the paper templates still weren't perfect.

    7) Drill tiny holes in the lower corners to attach the plate to the console.

    And before you ask:

    1) That job was 2 jobs ago and I don't have access to the CNC machine, photographic aluminum or Pro-E cad program (although I probably still have the file that I'll never be able to find if I try).

    2) I also have no idea where to find the blank switch plate that I cut out prior to the final run.

    It's my quick kill switch, if were cruising around and we see a cop coming up i flip the lid and the amp shuts down immediatly. Then when its safe flip the switch again. Im the only one of my friends thats never got caught with there system pretty much. Also handy if parents drive the car they can turn the bass off and i dont have to explain complicated ways through the headunit!! It makes life that much easier!

    I didn't buy a NOS ashtray but I did use mothers mag an aluminum polish on my gently used ashtray(thanks to previous owner) and it looks almost just as good as new. Nice and shiny.

    Nothing in mine either unless unless I take apart my console and throw some screws in their temporarily! My pusher fan switch is hidden underneath the ashtray though, in the same spot where the previous owner hid his plastic bag of goodies. lol

    I would love to find an NOS ashtray!
    You don't happen to know where I could find one,
    or maybe a part number for it?

    Thanks!
