Is your heater switch panel looking a bit lived in? scratched, bit bent ? scruffy ?

well now you add peel off that old nasty cover plate and fit a new one - you've never been able to do this before as the replacements are rigid and wont go over the bonded knob on the sliding lever.


very scruffy and bent old cover plate.

pull the nasty old one off

clean up the back section - even give it a lick of paint if you feel like it

pop on your new 'flexible' finisher

peel off just the first bit of backing paper
Posted Image

align it best you can and stick down the first 10mm or so
Posted Image

peel the rest of the backing papaer away - it'll rip as it goes past the sliding lever
Posted Image

and why not add a splash of colour whilst you're at it ?? :-

I like that,a good finishing touch.My only criticism would be the edges on the old plate are rounded off and yours are cut sharp.It makes it look like an add on IMO. Good job

fair point - I think the next step for these is to have the clear resin applied - make them look a bit more up market, in this application they would have to have rounded corners, also on the sliding lever slot,

I'll try a couple this afternoon and see how it looks. :teehee:

They look good. Do you have them for the twin speed heater too?

My only criticism would be that they don't look very black, or is this just a trick of the photography?

yes - twin speed is available too - I think its maybe bad camera / poor light - they're pretty black. I think if I do them with the resin they'll look better, darker and neater.
