    I used the same 32 style dash as you but cut the Model A dash rail and welded it to the new dash. My ignition and light switch are mounted under the dash for a cleaner look.

  7. That's called embossed metal, it is a stamping. You can buy the metal that way if you look around a little bit. It was used on machinery quite a bit, like envelope folding machines, conveyors etc.
    I have some in the garage now, stainless that came from an envelope stuffing and labeling machine.

    Scroll this page, all kinds of ideas and a few places to buy.

    Or here's a little piece unpolished on my Willys dash

    Always like the dash's that have a balanced lay out n that cool stainless back ground. Although I do like 5plus gages an all,but that was not something in my piggy bank back in the late 50's as a teen {1959}. So I kept it simple,water temp,oil psi,then added a tach after some saving. Many more years down the road,I had to redo the steering wheel an box too. But still drive my rod. IMAG1365.jpg

  26. @scrap metal 48 this glove box door get me to thinking. I want to make a radio delete plate for a current project and have a '54 Kansas tag, I am going to try it and see if I can make it work. ;)
