Hi

Another way.

Someone on the forum always has the answer - what a great place.

I'm trying to get in contact with Jim Cowden -- regarding his GT40 toggle switch tags. Does anyone have his contact information?

I have been looking for something like this also. I need to add some switches to my car and to take some on the dash out. My car has 4 different types of switches in it and it looks like a mess too. Plus, the last owner put the hazards under the steering wheel. I keep turning them on when I get in or out.

I like the pictures, but I want them to light up also. I have ordered the toggle switches, and the hoops. Once I finish the design, I will post the pictures here. I have access to a laser cutter, so my first design will be on plastic. If that does not work out, I will go to metal.

CF is a different animal. With plastic I just draw something up on Illustrator, and hit print on the laser cutter. With metal, I can use the punch tool. With FC sheets, I can sometimes get lucky with the punch tool. We have a vacuum pump system that my friend is using to make a snowboard. When I get it back in December, let me see what I can do. Who am I kidding? I will most likely not get to this project till January.

I used the labels from Carolina Laser. Inexpensive and nicely made as per my custom lettering.

Thanks John.

Not to be selfish, but I personally have round rocker toggle switches on a leather dash. Has anyone found labels that work with this?

These look great to me...

I found some dialogue (from 2007) on another forum between FF members and Jim Cowden's name was mentioned. Seems like he was manufacturing these. That's the main reason I am searching for his contact info.
