my Idea of my AC DELETE PANEL brought to life

Postby LSCustoms on Sun May 06, 2012 1:17 am



been thinking about this for a long time, today i decided to do something about it. changed it up a little, but for the most part, youll get the idea.

Can do this and personalize it for you too, if ya want, not selling the chevy emblem though, or just do it yourself, cause thats what this shit is all about, giving and not expecting...

18elcamino82 (something special coming your way) thanks bud, for trying to help me, I got you covered in this, when I can and when i get it all the way sorted out...

Looking good brah nice idea indeed . I like the way it lights up for sure . Great job and thanks for posting up the vid . How much did it cost u to get the piece cut with the Chevy emblem ? How do u plan on stopping water penetration around the cut outs of the emblem and letters ?

cant give out all my secrets just yet, but it should be fine as far as water and it actually seals up very well. the minimal water that would be able to impact that area prob wouldnt effect anything even the way it is now. but it def seals well enough for me, if you wanted it to seal "water tight" you could simply use gasket maker (a small amount and in the right manner)...

as far as getting the piece cut, I wont give out prices on this in the public forum, but it was cut with a laser cutting machine (and the price i paid was cheaper that any plain ac delete plate sold by any company). the emblem and letters were drawn in (by hand, so to speak) off of the cad that my friend emailed me and the panel itself was drawn "by hand" off of the original piece i cut for the car. im going to be drilling the holes and having that laser cut out also... I had this first one cut to work out any bugs, as far as placement etc. and the new one I had cut will work perfect. finishing the rest of the pieces and "cleaning it all up" to make it look very nicely done. gonna be making a few more pieces for personal friends/family then anyone else interested in something like it, that cant do it themselves, i will prob work something out with them, that will more than likely be foolish for them to pass up, not too sure yet. and didnt give all the details, cause im still working on it. didnt do this for money or to sell, started off being about my sons el co

I'm not a big proponent of A/C delete panels, but I must say, that's some awesome work.

Nice. Great idea. Well thought-out. If I had not gone thru all the trouble of converting to a non-AC set-up, I'd want one!
