    With that design it'd be cool to take exhaust tube and build matching pods on each side of the speedo pod for extra gauges.

    Maybe do away with the integral speedo gauges...

  5. Looking good. I narrowed one for my COE. I had to take out some on the left end to center the speedo over the column.

    Yes I will have to do the same . Not a bunch but just enough to look goofy

    It has an aircraft look to it, very nice!
     
  8. Looks good. I always considered the '49-'50 Ford dash among the most attractive ever.

    I'm making one of those dashes into my garage radio so it will hang on the wall. I'll post pictures when it's not just a bunch of welded panels that don't look like much. Great idea for the model A!
