    I happen to have a 2nd Gen overhead console sitting here, so I whipped up with a few switch panel designs. Would you guys be interested in something like this? I already make a bunch of custom 3rd Gen panels , And really the sky is the limit on number of buttons and layout. Cool thing I noticed about the 2nd Gen console is the sunglass pop down is the same size as the garage door tray right next to it, so essentially this panel could go in either spot.
    Here's some pics, I'll post when I get them out of the printer.

    Super interested. Been wanting to do this for a looooooong time now. If you could do a taller switch version, that'd be awesome.

    I would definitely like to see a finished switch Pro mount. That's where mine is currently mounted but the angle of yours would probably be a lot more user-friendly.

    If this is for real this would be perfect for my upcoming lighting project.

    Easy Peasy.
    I can actually fit 6 of the taller switches in there

    I'll post it up as soon as I get it out of the printer. But I design all the switchpro holes to be recessed flush with the front face. I think it looks cleaner. Here's an example;

    Thanks for the offer! But we've got more than enough printers here at my work to test on. These will actually be made from a nylon multi jetfusion printer so the quality and finish will be OEM quality.
