    Last week I was looking all around for a switch panel for a 98 Cobra and I could not find one. I want one like this

    but if you don't know already, the 98 Cobras(and maybe others, I'm not sure) have the dual cup holders like the new edge stangs so you cant use the UPR or painless or other panels. After exhausting my efforts I decided to just build my own.
    I started with a template for fitment

    then after i got really close I moved to a plate that I made

    After getting an idea of what switches and where to put them I made the final product.
    Here is a pic of the plate with the SVT cutouts top and side.

    I was still running wires and everything at the time. I added a push button start with a key for ON/OFF. The 3 switches in the rear and for interior lights, rear view camera, and an open one for another upcoming mod.
    I thought I wanted the plate black to match the rest of the interior but changed my mind. I put Red lens tape of the backside of the SVT and I put LEDs inside so the SVT will light up at night.

    I can do a HOW TO on the push button if anyone is interested.
    Heres the final pic. Let me know what yall think!!

    Yeah I hear ya. But this car isn't a cruiser. And some sn95 cobras have the single fold out cup holder in the center console.
