Thank you for compliment.
This is my first conversion. I did not work in similar area. I am industrial mechanic with welding, machining, electrical ,fabricating skills. All the other trades like woodworking, upholstery itc, I had to learn my self. Books were very helpful and some youtube woodworking tips. There are some books avialable for Rv service which I found most usable; propane, pluming, electrical , each separate book.
If I can help in any way just ask.

Here is one mor pix of my 2 1/2 years of work.
Beutiful work, ZIGGYK! I agree - $250 is way too much. I had some custom labels and placards made recently from double layer plastic. It's available in just about any color at a local engraving shop. They charged a few dollars per plate. Seems like a small panel like yours should be a lot more reasonably priced.
Here's a site that did the same kind of work I had done: http://www.plastic-tags.com/index.php

Great setup, ZIGGYK.
Another method is to go to a shop that does custom engraving on plaques and trophies. There are plastic sheets that have two layers of colors. For instance, top layer is black, next layer is white (or reverse). Engrave lettering through top layer, cuts through and exposing next color. Leaves a nice, professional panel. It will take a little setup, but nice results.

It takes a real plane to make a Maddog look "modern" ;-)
