    Not written in stone; my memory says those sending units only worked on on odd number tachs, 5k, 7k, 9k...[​IMG]

  5. IMG_1594.JPG IMG_1595.JPG IMG_0216.JPG IMG_1596.JPG This is the dash in the '35 Chevy. It's actually a '34 Master dash panel, but it bolts right into the '35 Standard, andit moves the gauges from the center to the left side, and adds a glove box on the right. Covered up the billet aluminum insert with a piece of guitar pick guard material routed to the proper shape.

    The dash panel in my '29 Roadster project, I added the lights and gauges 20170414_132713.jpg . Not sure what it is...boat, car? maybe someone knows.
  10. Some very beautiful dashes in there and some that a heap of thought and work has been taken to make them work. Can I suggest though that the idea of the instrument panel was first and foremost is the inform the driver of what his or her engine is doing in regards of the two critical ones, oil pressure and engine temperature. With that said, one must be able to not only see the gauges, but be able to read them at a glance so when working on ones dash, remember it has to not only look good but be functional too so that is where the individual owner builder has to decide. I like the high polished look on some of the surrounds but would that effect allow sunlight to reflect back into the drivers eyes ? Those are the sort of questions only the owner can answer but then really should be taken into consideration before it is so called " Finished " . I have a basic panel in my T Roadster with the switches and ignition down on the seat base as I like to drive with my seat belt on yet still be able to reach the switches easily. 009.jpg

  11. Tried to do something a little different from the normal flat dash on my T. I stamped a dash and rolled the lower edge to look similar to an A tank, fitted it with a '29 cluster filled with SW gauges, and topped along a hammer formed "dash rail".

    Chevy 1955. Nothing fancy other than filled radio and lighter holes. Whole dash is silver metallic. 20170405_192149.jpg
  13. ^^^^^ Here's a portion of mine. Radio hole is still there it's just covered by optional no hole trim. [​IMG]

    Here are a couple. A '35/6 dash going in the '32 sedan build with some slightly different gauges. And then the dash done quite a few years ago in the '36 roadster............hardly anyone knew what it was from. 32 in shop 18.JPG 32 in shop 19.JPG 36dash4.jpg 005a.jpg

    39 Ford Standard with under dash a/c unit mounted up in dash. This gives instant heat/cool since it has no ducting and all controls are built in. Have used on several cars with good results.

    Nothing fancy, it's a 1941 GMC truck dash cut down to fit a 1927 Model T coupe.

    1st personalizing attempt on my first car. 33 5 window. Vinyl wrapped, date says it all. Scan.jpg
    Just realized no matter how things change they always stay the same. Was driving a 35 year old car then and drive a 42 year old car now.
