Whaddya got behind your steering wheel, and what gauges? Anything interesting or just damn cool.
Not done, not mine........... anymore. 28 A RPU.
just a simple dash
Nothing fancy. A homemade aluminum insert with a '37 Ford speedometer and Autometer Antique Beige temp and oil gauges. I think I've located a replacement for that ugly-ass steering wheel (I can't wait to part with it).
yeah... I bet you can't... I'd prefer a couple of set of vice grips over that wheel! Rest looks great though.
So, somewhere there's an '80s Ford Escort running around with a '40 Ford wheel?
My dash in "Trouble Maker"
Made a panel that 'floats' behind the openings mounting the gauges. Military AMP and Oil Pressure gauges and an old S-W mechanical tach. Going to paint the tach bezel black to match. All mounting screws are brass.
My vice grips are kinda old, probably wouldn't stay clamped long enough to back out of the shop.
If I was confident in my steering wheel restoration abilities, i woulda had a '36 wheel on it long ago. At any rate, it should be gone by the end of the summer.

Heres the 54 f-100 dash in my friends 34 pickup.
And heres the 63 falcon gauge cluster in my 27 t sedan.
Here are some of mine...
And some I did for others...
My 37 that my daughter painted.
This one never made it back into a car.
Its in a box some place around here.
But the old Chevys had some nice paint...
Holy Shit she has some talent. Did she get it from you?
The dash I put in the T
One of the things I'm really proud of on my car is that if you look closely, you'll see thats actually an aftermarket modern digital radio that fits in the stock location and controls a 10 disc changer but appears to be stock. Nice thing about Tri-Fives, they make some really cool stuff for them even if a lot of people on here think they are played out.
Petejoe, your daughter did a great job on that dash, it's nice to have talented kids isn't it! Mark

She is an artist but it was the first she did anything like this.
I am really proud of her and she was very proud that I let her put it in the coupe for me.
Got the talent from me???? No way is my patience that long but...There's just a few genes mixed in there somewhere. Thanks again
heres mine i think
