Cig tray switches...

How would I go about making those switches in the Cig tray? I know how to hook them up and everything, just not how to get them in there in a custom layout. Thanks guys! wave

Here's one I made from Carbon. Just cut out a piece of thick card in the desired shape and layed carbon over it, applied resin, wet sanded to 1000 grit and then clear coated it.

I dremeled where needed and drilled desired holes. Drilled out a 3/4" hole in the back of the ashtray and fixed it in place with a piece of pipe hanger.

Just one solution smile
