Well I figured that I would get anew thread for this going, as the one in the for sale section, is going a little bit away from the gentleman selling an original dash plate. ;)

I have a call into my CNC guy with the STEP files to cut some dashplates for me. I will have to let you know what the price is, as I haven't heard anything back from him yet. I have the generic file that I can make a whole lot of changes to. So it will be fully customizable, I know there is someone on there that is making these already but I figured that I would try something different, I Will elaborate later on if it works.

They will be made from aluminum, for those wondering.

Link to previous thread here.

I will update when I hear something back.

YEah I would think that there wouldn't be any difference, I just have to find out what my CNC guys setup time and all that nonsense would be, you know. I will make some examples and see what you think.

Ok babyblue, for some reason the font gets my program all screwed up and I can't put 9C1 in it, I think that it has something to do with the way it would be cut. Here is a preview of what I can come up with

that actually looks pretty cool, can your CNC guy do throttle body plates as well?

Probably I would assume anyway, I have an extra one laying around I can take the measurements and dink around with it and see what I come up with.

Cory I will work on it right now, I am having trouble with the program, it is being an a$$hole :)

my turn my turn lol can i see CoryBlack and one that says All Black Everything if it fits
Here you go I will have to work on the other one for you, I am not sure that it will fit, I need to try and revise the font as it is screwing up some of the machining aspects of the program, I will keep working on it.

Here is the INC one.

I am still dinking with the fonts as the program I have is having a heart attach trying to engrave them. I will see what I can figure out on it.

i've used that program before aswell, its been awhile, didnt get too far with it either
Yeah it isn't really that hard it is just when I try to engrave in the project some of the letters cause a stupid ass error that I can't get rid of, the only way to do it is to remake the font, Not sure I know how to do that. LOL
