I got to build a stainless Willys dash panal.

The owner of the shop were I work came in the other day with old, rusty, beat and cut up dash panal out of a Willys jeep and wanted me to make him a new one out of stainless steel for a friend of his. We have been very slow at work and I was glad to build something for a jeep. Took me most of the day to get it done but it sure looked sharp. The stainless we use is T- 304 with a satin finish. I took a Scotch-brite pad and hand rubbed it until it was very smooth and all the small scratches were gone. I should have took a pic of it but I didn't. Maybe I can when the jeep is finished. It looked so good I'm tempted to build one for my CJ. Kinda nice working on something for a jeep and getting paid for doing it for a change!

I've been thinking about doing something like that. Man some pictures would have been cool too. How would you cut the holes? Would a hole saw punch thorough stainless?
