As the title states. I'll be making a dash for the roadster. I'm more of a metal guy than a wood guy so...........which wood should I use? I don't want it too dark of a color, more on the lighter side. I'd like it to be 1" thick so I can recess the gauges a little. It'll be a simple design. Gauges are aftermarket, white faced, 5 of 'em are two inch and the tach is 3-1/2". A toggle switch or two plus a headlight and ignition switch. Steer me in the right direction, guys! Thanks!
