    That thing is beautiful. It is a bit much for my tastes though...the guages kinda get lost in all that brightwork.

    That is a real nice piece and should really dress up your car!
    I would definitely use it.

    Just realized I commented on NWB' picture thinking it was an update from the original poster, making my comment irrelevant to this thread.

    I have a 35 Auburn that would look right at home in. Looks TOO Good.
     
  16. looks great. Here's one going in my friend Ray's 32. The "striping" is engraved and the surround will be replated.

    That piece will set the bar pretty high for the rest of the car's details. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it; it's gorgeous, but the other parts of the car will now want to be executed beautifully as well.

    Looks awesome! Great job. I may now have to put a little spit shine into my original '32 panel.

    I saw this the first day it was posted and didn't respond because everyone was saying the same thing. Beautiful. So now I have to say something. God DAMN that's freakin' beautiful.

    Wow... That is just beautiful! Can't wait to see it in a car! I'm thinking it needs to be in something similar to the Doane Spencer Roadster. Clean and simple, closed hood, but with some real nice chrome on a Duvall Windshield Frame and suspension parts.

    The key will be not going OTT on all the other parts. Keep the rest as just a clean and high class surround to the real jewellery on the dash.

    Stunning. I'm very envious!

    I Love it..but if I were going to put it in a 32 I would spin the gauges around and install it upside down with the handlebars on top!! IMHO..way cool!
     
  30. looks good, I would use it all day long
