    My 29 coupe. Tank was already cut out underneath for electrics. Cut front gauge mount out and Auburn dash follows the line of the bottom of the tank.

    I like the simplicity of the '32 dash, and I love curved glass Stewarts, so I'm making this one...

    I love the 36 dash.... Those little kick ups at each top corner just do it for me. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1460980348.912973.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1460980429.224329.jpg

    Yup, 36 looks awesome.

    Finding a '36 waterfall from a soft top (doesn't have the hole for the windshield crank) was the hard part!

    Rebuilt '36 gauges

    This is a fabricated aluminum dash that I made up for my 28 Roadster.

    This is my '31. Curly cherry, Faria gauges, toggle switches for the lights. The heater switch panel is a converted gas filler door that swings up out of the view and the ID plates were made for me by a local advertising media shop.

    But the hole is a great spot for a shift light or a low oil pressure warning lamp.

    Not really custom (like putting another car's dash in), was just looking for clean and something joe blow would have done years ago.

    I like the 32 dashes. Used a speedo from a 50 Ford, has signal lights built in.

    i was surprised not to see any 47 dashes installed .. Im just about to make a start to slimming down a 47 to fit in a buddies 30 coupe also running a 47 wheel .. Just laid half of it in there earlier tonight and perhaps realised why its not so common.. Definately needs a lot of work to fit but from the teaser i gave myself, it looks like its gonna be pretty cool.. ( If I can pull it off )
