reading the care and working direction, I don't think it would hold up to the engine heat. I was also concerned about the oils that would stain the surface as it is after all the engine access cover. I am sure the product could be worked into the console just don't know how it would hold up to the h...

Brad just called and has the piece cut and is getting the first coat of primer on it. We should be able to get a second coat and get it out tomorrow. I am going to get it sent out as quick as possible, hopefully you can have for the weekend.

I sent them insured but it would probably easier to just send the cup holder part, if you don't mind.

I like mine, a 1964, but don't get to ride as much as when I got it. Fortunately for me we live in a fairly flat area. These Swiss bikes draw as much attention as the Pinz does. Up keep gets pricey with the specialty size tires and tubes. I did manage to collect the travel bag for mine which fits in...

What has been the most popular to date is to leave it mdf. A few owners have used thin weather stripping but I have seen no real advantage to this. I have chosen to leave that up to each individual.

Looks like there is enough interest in the center consoles so I am going to put some together in the next week. I will prime them and have them ready for you to paint. They are $50 plus shipping.

I use a Garmin 176c in all my trucks. In the pinz the mounts are above the windshield wiper motor. Many of the GPS units that are marine/aviation rated will plug directly into 8 to 32 volt systems as is the case with the 176 series. They are portable with AA batteries but a bit bulky. I have externa...

I can do a run of them usually 5 at a time. They are made from MDF and have held up in several roll overs. I have templates but no real plans.

Here is a picture of mine, you can see the intercom control unit towards the front along with the overhead lighting and t...
