    the list is shortening, driverside runningboard, right doorhandle and that's about it..

    busy on the chassis and the engine.. making some room to work on it properly..

    engineworks.. slightly releaved and freshly honed..

    last dirtywork is the valveseat grinding.. then I'm about ready to build it up again.

    clean it up, degrease first, then the classic stuff of cam (schneider) and valves etc etc..

    the dashboard also has seen better days.. so now I'm looking for replacement meters.

    anybody has an idea what meter was originally in the right hole? there was a modern voltmeter built into it..
     
  4. I would think that the right hole would have a dual guage like the left side. Water temp and amp or oil pressure and amp. I don't think there would be a voltmeter in there.

    Samster,
    Here is apicture of my '36 dodge dash gauges. You can see Amps & Heat on the right. With a litlle grinding, you can get new 3.25" gauges to fit. I researched all I could find, but they are all too deep to clear the cowl vent mechanism, and I wouldn't want to lose that. So i just use the stock gauges.

    two to go, I put them in the bath as they are, since there's no holes in them.
    letters came out véry nice even if I say so myself..

    just slightly brushed off, and put ac-50 on it to prevent rusting befor I paint them..
