    That cluster looks f'ing great. If your really that unhappy with all that "bling" I can send you my address and help you feel better about yourself.

    I agree, get rid of the new winged gauges. That nice of a panel needs to have original (or restored) winged gauges in it. Anything less wouldn't do it justice.

    I love it too but Paul is right. It needs to be beat to shit and have "patina" or else it won't be traditional. : - )

    Super nice! The gauge cluster is the centerpiece of a 1932 dash and it was meant to look great.

    The gauge panel is nice.
    I'm not a fan of FPM after having bought from them.
    The gauges are junk, nothing compares to original SW 40's-50's gauges.

    Very Nice. Were it mine I'd tone down the chrome a bit, less polished.
     
  26. You can always tone it down by scuffing all the lenses!
    I love it!!! Great job.

    I read the first page, and then skipped to the last page, and it looks nice, but man I liked it better just the way you first displayed it. Your choice of course.
