Smile Custom push button mod

Don't ask me why I did this... but I really like it.



I used silver metallic foil mailing labels from Amazon, and used Photoshop to get the dimensions of my "circles" to be precisely the size of the flat part of the button (21mm diameter). I used a laser printer as it will hold up better in the long term and isn't affected by moisture like an inkjet print.



Following a friend's advise, I used packing tape to cover the label to further protect it, and then carefully cut it out with a scissors. A cutting tool would have been better... my cut isn't perfect but the black blends well and you have to look very close to notice that.



A black sharpie was then used to darken the thin edges of the cutout, which I did by flipping it and holding it with some pressure against scrap paper so as not to color the finished side accidentally.

Re: Custom push button mod

Maybe I could do that with a slight modification. Instead of the Jeep Logo, I could have a pic of myself. Then everytime I start the car, I would be reminded that I AM UNDER THE THUMB, if using my thumb to press, or GETTING THE FINGER, if using one of my digits.

Very nice, really liking the look. If I had that as an option on my '09, I'd have to have put "Go Baby Go" on the start button.
