I got the box from Radio Shack, then cut it to fit the contour of the roof. I cut the holes for the guages and switches, then painted it gray. I made small 'L' mounting brackets, and used the screws for the inner sun visor holders to mount the box.

The red switches are from Radio Shack and control the blue lights. The guages are from Summit Racing. The guage on the left is a voltage guage, and the other is a fuel guage for the auxiliary tank. I got the panel of 6 switches on the bottom from JC Whitney. They control the auxiliary fuel tank pump, fog lights, reverse lights, alley lights, and takedown lights.

The project turned out better than expected, given my poor fabrication skills.

I've received emails from several people asking how I ran the wires. Here are a couple more pictures.
