Switch decals

Has anyone tried anything like these to put the letters back on your dash switches? I have a 2004 Prostar that needs it. My MCOCD doesn't like the blank switches I'm looking at

of course these are just the 1st ones I found. If anyone has done this with any success I'd appreciate a link to the letters you used.

I'm open to other ways to get them on there! I have a few art students at my disposal that I could get to cut me out a stencil as a last resort.

When I redid my dash in carbon fiber I went to a local trophy shop and had then cut out of that hard plastic label stuff. They are black over white and then the guy cut them out on a letter transfer machine.

On my 2004 they are printed or as mike said, silk screened right on the switch.

Yup, I was just offering an alternative idea.

I'm going for the stock look, but I do appreciate the option. Love your carbon fibre panels!

I've been planning this for the off season. Crazy how many of us think of similar mods. Can you please elaborate on your process. I'm a little confused on how you used the old dash in the process. Did you just epoxy it to one layer of CF and cut out the holes? This didn't make the dash too thick? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Post #8 in that thread covers most of what I did to build the panels.

The only thing the old dash panels were used for was the make templates on the foam filler panels.
