i used that plate from the center of dash, drilled some holes in it for the switches and made a 1'' deep wooden frame for it, screwed the plate to wood then wood to dash area. drill 1 hole for all your wires thru the dash then silicone it, and then no mud or water will touch you electicals at all

I was going to make my own aluminum panel, but I needed 3 round holes for gauges and 3 rectangular holes for rocker switches, and I figured by the time I factored in my time to get it EXACTLY right, it was cheaper and easier to buy a plate from UTV Inc for $18. Luckily I was already buying something else from them, so there was no additional shipping.

However, if all you want to mount are a few toggle switches, then just make your own plate.

I finally got around to making my panel,been busy with my newborn baby girl. . I think it turned out good. I mounted my winch, and two toggle switches. One for my deer feeder-seed spreader and a extra switch for a back light. I will post some pics later after I get them off my phone.

I built mine directly into the existing control area using the BRP sealed switches.

I'll be putting a Rugged Radio in the dangers/precautions panel area.



Top-to-bottom, L-R turn switch, PIAAs and horn (bought separately) all on switched-hot.

Right side; Dome, whip and spare all on constant hot.

I added the BRP spare battery unit and the build is on a separate post in "How to".

It's almost done. Just a few more clean-ups.

I'm only new to SxSs, not to dirt.
