thanks it's a little annoying forming tubing to this shape, it likes to fold in and point out at the ends, I made a negative mould from oven bake clay and it helped shape the inside while crushing it

You are showing a lot of ingenuity here Tallon! Very creative. ::thumbup
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?

Just to show what you can do to make your own mirror switch surround
I used 1.5" inner diameter aluminum tube and squeeze it to the right shape
I could have more easily put the bevel in there when it was round but didn't think of it
Need to polish

Thank you String,  I am going to print these out today and see how they turn out,  also incredible work on the radio/AC support assembly.
I am going to attempt a rather large print of that complete unit.!

Excellent work on these drawings,  i am going to actually 3d print them and see how they come out.
perhaps not for a functional product so much as it will be cool to see.

Definitely a good part for a 3D printer.
