Super clean! Did that little indicator panel start life as something else?

Hey mate,  this build looks great. I loved the other one too.

Your profile says you're in Hobart, is that correct? I'll be keeping my eyes open looking for you, I imagine your ride would stand out

Nope. Well, that's not entirely true, the wood started out as a blackwood tree and I imagine the Copper and Zinc started life in the ground... but I digress...no, it's made from scratch.

Hey mate, thanks. Yep, I'm in Hobart (Hobart, Tassie that is). If you see me putting about come and say hi!

Noddy, I think he might have been asking what it was derived from.  (like this stock honda panel attached)  Yours looks fantastic,  I think it fits in well.

Ah, gotcha. Yep, it was just the stock dash board. It's hard to see in that photo, but the original panel had a faux wood-grain effect printed on the aluminium.. so I clearly had to make it out of real wood!

And thanks heaps for the kind words guys, but I'm certainly no guru! Just bumbling along learning as I go...

The quality you get on these components is amazing! If you don't mind me asking what is the process you use?
