Really nice looking. Thanks for posting.
I just got a phone call to do some push-thru acrylic for an interior job. If you are willing to share any tricks of the trade it would be appreciated.

Read up on offsets in aspire.
I use a 1/2" bit to speed up pocket routing time with lexan cutting.
Make sure to use same size bit for male/female cuts.
Happy routing.

Polycarbonate isn't my first choice, but I haven't used it as much as acrylic.

I made a push through, on a much smaller scale.
This was made to replace the original dash plaque on a '91 Z28.
It measures 1.2 x 6.5, if I remember correctly.

That's cool looking.

I'm new to the game, can you explain what "push through" means for the neophyte?

I'm guessing, based on the OP's photo, that the translucent material is a reverse inlay in the opaque material...
