    The gauge panel looks brilliant, but it is a bit "gold-chainer" to use on a traditional rod, I reckon. Perhaps you could trade it for a whole car to someone with more money than brains.
    Good luck with it and thanks for showing us.
    Cheers.

    A really nice piece....but I would go for nickel plate instead of the chrome, it would contrast nicely with the engine turned facia.....and like has been mentioned by others, the gauges look too new..a set of originals would suit better...but hey, it's not mine and it is a mighty nice set up whatever, I love the surround with the little tails, very neat.

    ....fear not....the whole parts collecting and build process IS self-indulgent...run with it...
     
  8. You ain't got a thing, if you ain't got the bling.

    I'll trade you a Model A gauge panel and pick it up next time I'm at Larry's.

    The gauges and engine turned panel is beautiful. I have done some engine turning in the past and the pattern on this is different and the best I have seen. I will try this pattern the next time I do some, I really like it. Thanks for showing it.

    PERFECT!!!!!!!!!! I've got the same dash planned for my Roadster but plan to use SMITHS gauges that would have been in a 1962 Cobra. How were the holes cut in the engine turned panel? I'll need the same holes cut in the aluminum Pierce Arrow casting that Alchemy made, a real nice item. Thanks for the post. Bob [​IMG]

    That panel raises the bar for the rest of the vehicle it'll go into... What a gorgeous piece! Hat's off to the cats that saved it!

    I keep going back and looking at this dash, study it, look at the details of how the engine turned swirls are evenly spaced between the gauges. There is a ton of time in this piece. This is Pebble Beach quality work. Bob

    Thanks! I really appreciate the very positive response. As some of you have noted, this is a piece you build a car around. I have a concept fermenting in my mind. Definitely a 32 Ford. Most likely a 5 window coupe. And it will have a Rolling Bones/Jitney inspired front suspension that will be based around my narrowed 46-48 Lincoln axle.
