I'm arranging a new control panel
in an out-of-the-way area of my cat, and I'm trying to find an appropriate material. It should be thin so that the switches and guages can fit, and stiff so that it can hold the weight. Size is approximately 30 cm by 40 cm, to hold a bunch of voltmeters, amp meters, toggle switches and a little fuse panel. I looked at nice exotic wood panelling, but it's all too thick for the guages and switches to stick through. These guages and other electrical gear
appear to be set up for steel
panelling, which I can't get and dont really want.
Right now, I'm leaning towards buying
a sheet of that material that is usually glued to countertop, and placing one thin sheet of fibreglass to the back. I can reinforce it with 1 cm x 1 cm hardwood on all 4 sides, and screw it in place on two of those. Any better ideas?
