Any input would be appreciated (maybe there are things I'm not considering)
I have the aluminum sheet cut to size and have covered it in blue 3M masking tape. For whatever reason, I've taped the backside and layed everything out in the mirror of how it will attach to the console.
My throttle is on the right, I was planning the gauge cluster right center, the HDS-7 far left, and the stereo lower left. Along the bottom, I'll lay all of toggle switches/circuit breakers. There's currently an iPod dock there in the lower right but I'm not set on even having that. Also, I put anything "in" (12v Aux plugs/3.5 mm audio in) close to the top so that it's not a long cable run to whatever is sitting on top of the console
I'll probably redo this many times before I start cutting but I thought that I would ask. One suggestion so far was to put the HDS right in the center and build around that. I might consider that but I need to see if the steering wheel will cover any of it.
