Purpose for relocating?

I looked into doing something with them when I went with 1 1/8" bars but didn't like the look of the bar pad so I made some brackets and used my stock dash.

If you get rid of your stock dash and need a bar pad, I have two to choose from in the for sale section.

I enlarged the diameter of the tabs on the underside and made some brackets out of flat aluminum or sheetmetal for the two clips.

you have to take a notch out from the hole that the key blob goes through. there is a small piece of plastic that protudes from the key blob, that locates into the notch you have cut out from the hole, and this stops the blob from turning.
i did the same thing and wondered why my key just kept on turning !!.

hope this helps

I have done some searching on a few of the forums and wasn't able to come up with any locations or ideas on where to relocate my indicator lights on my 12 Z to. Anyone have any ideas or links that they have found for the late model Z's? Ive seen all the places that the 03-08 Z's but not much with the late model ones.
