Changed out the fuel tank sock today, it didn't need it. Stared at the fuel filter design for about an hour and threw the new filter back on the shelf for another day.

Too Cool Treeroot!

All other 80's must bow to the Ptarmigan!

Keep it up, FWIW, I ordered all LEDs for my 40's interior the other day in light of your awesome build... and the fact that I couldn't see my gauge at night either.

Yeah, that is what it looks like. In and Out controls after turning it on... pretty slick.

Looks good, what did you use to make the switch faces?

I used a defroster button out of a 4runner for the wince enable. I ran the ground through it so that the winch in and winch out controls are only active when the enable button is active. It also has a light so I know it is on. The 4 runner switches are the right style but you will need to source some clear plastic because the lables are a sandwich of things and can't be sanded clear.

The stock button labels are clear plastic that is silk screened from the back. All of them have a green overlay and some of them also have a black mask. That was sanded off with 1200 grit sandpaper and followed up with plastic polish. The labels are from http://forum.ih8mud.com/80-series-te...gle-sheet.html - NLXTACY just cleaned up a bit. That gets printed on some card stock and superglue makes the paper translucent. I used a green silk screen paint to keep the OE color even though I use blue LEDs behind it. Without the green the color is more blue. I like the teal color and it keeps everything matching. The last step was to use vinyl to keep light showing through the paper so that was applied in reverse to the buttons. Here are the images used. The bigger one is the mask that is behind it.
