What?????????? You didn't like my wiper I really wanted to mount a hand that would wave when I put the wiper on but it kept flying off.
I found a round piece of plastic the right size that I painted and then siliconed into place. It will do for now but Ill keep my eye open for an electricians plug that will fit in there. Have you connected the light bulbs for your gauges yet

Dang Rich. Be careful man. Maybe a tile/diamond blade saw? Otherwise, as stated above I'd go for a band saw.

I would use 2 c clamps and a thin piece of wood for a straight edge. Find the center, clamp the straight edge on the material then make a few shallow passes with the grinder and cut-off blade.
Saw that on Bob Vila once

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Salvaged the project thanks to Pep Boys door edging. 90% happy with the results, but will re-do them if I ever run across a similar vent in stainless. Was inspired to do something different by Nick's wooden grills. Made me realize how cheesy my stocker's covered in stainless screen looked.

They came out much better with that trim. Nice work man! Reminds me, I got my speaker fabric today. Started messing around with different glues and adhesives to see what works best...
