And, since my dash has the 10 degree angle "built in" to the frame, I felt it would be easier to make these cutouts before attaching the dash beam to the rest of the frame.
Now, all those cutouts have been made.
|3-1/4" cutout for the helm, plus marking the placement for a rocker switch.|
|I made the initial cuts for the rocker switch hole with a drill and a coping saw.|
|I enlarged the hole with my jig saw, and finished it with a wood file.|
|After some tedious and meticulous work with the file, the switch fits. I'll file it just a little more to accommodate a layer or two of epoxy.|
The next steps for Frame #4 will be to sand away my placement markings and attach the dash beam to the rest of the frame.
Happy Monday to you! (Yes, it's a Monday, but we can make it a good one if we choose to.)
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.— Psalm 118:24
