    Before and after in my '50 shoebox. I'm certainly no craftsman, but I like how it turned out.

    Mine got some paint on it finally, I'll put it together next week and give you an updated photo. It'll get some pin-striping to separate the colors later.

    This is my '40 dash in my T coupe. Been narrowed about 3". The radio speaker grille is a shortened one from a '41 after the '40 one became a melted blob when I tried welding it. Instrument cluster is from information I gleaned from mj40's tech week post. IMG_1005.JPG

    A BIG Thanks goes out to fleetside66! He hooked me up with the beginnings of my dash last week.

    After great lengths of searching I finally id'd the gauge panel I got from him.

    It appears to be a 25' - 26' studebaker cluster. What makes it hard to id is it has 4 small gauge holes vs the common studebaker small 3 hole cluster.

    I found only 2 pics of a stude 4 hole cluster after many many hours of searching the web. It seems to be only on the special 6 model and then only on very few of those so I'm guessing there was a option for a 4th gauge but only on the "Special 6" model.

    The 2 pics are really bad so I couldn't blow them up to try and id the gauges BUT anyway its perfect for my desires!

    I'm thinking it would be perfect set into a 35 to 39 ford dash, with a center waterfall and painted cool vanilla to match the firewall with wood grain behind the cluster and the glove box area. I'm leaving the cluster just as it is, it's to damn perfect to change!!

    Now I just need to find a dash to cut and fit in my 31 tudor!

    Here's a pic with my autometer gauges that are close to my cool vanilla color! Just need to order the tach now! Drill a hole in the front glass to allow the trip odometer knob to stick thru and the gauge cluster is ready !!

    Thanks again to fleetside66 !!

  11. Here's a picture of one of the two 4 hole panels that are on a local auction. Can see a few of the original gauges and panel orientation.

    I'm so happy that the panel met your requirements. I'm stunned the way your gauges fit those holes. I knew the small ones would fit, but didn't realize how at home the big ones would look. It's very unusual for a 1920's gauge panel to have the specs to house modern sized gauges, without a lot of tweaking of the holes. With that one, you couldn't do a lot of alteration without ruining that amazing factory scrollwork (pinstriping?). You seem to have the one panel that lent itself to proper customization without ruining the original intent of the gauge panel. Sweet! I believe the hump was meant to go on the top, but having it on the bottom might even look better. You da man!

    Don't think I've posted any of these photos before. This is the dash on our roadster.






    And this is the gauge cluster I made for the '62 Falcon that we no longer have.

    Don't know why those last two pictures don't show up. They are there on my edit screen. Let's try again.
