    Time to get a 32 dash for my 31 coupe. Who’s the best source for it ?
    Thanks in advance.

  2. Brookville Roadster makes a steel `32 dash that's just the lower part that you combine with your stock A dash rail..... i have one in my `30 coupe and `28 sedan

    I use stock 32 dashes in Model A's and they are easy to install. A pickup dash just fits a coupe or sedan or you can use a 32 sedan/five window dash if you add about 3/4 inch to the ends.

    I did the same thing as "norms30a" and mounted my ignition and light switches under the dash on each side of the steering column.

    How much room is left between the new dash and stock tank with these? Enough to mount gauges without having to cut up the tank?

    None, the stock tank has to be removed.

    All I did was cut the dash molding along the square edge using about 3/4 inch edge and weld it to the Brookville panel and drill the mounting holes. I used machine screws to pull the holes in like the factory panel counter sink and a little body work.

    Which Brookville lower are you using, the one sold for 30/31 or the "universal" one?

    No problem, just tell them your user name, guess they check with the boss. It’s 10% discount.
     
  23. Got mine from Snyder’s and it was an easy fit behind my cabriolet dash rail, and it accommodates many instrument panels.

    I think they get them from Brookville. Love that gauge cluster. Looks like a Plymouth ?
    Thanks
