    Lookin good Daveo! I just seen those the other day on eBay, and thought it was pretty sweet! It was a refreshing surprise to see something aftermarket like this for our 53-54 cars from so-cal speed shop.

    yeah its pretty neat they had something like that i think it will look alot better then using the old one and making a panel for it now the hard part is next what kinda gauges to run. so many to choose from..

    Thanks! im thinking about chopping it just a little 3 inches gonna get it running and driving then ill decide if i want to go ahead and give her the snip :D

    that would look good to me. have seen people put them in ashtray to hide them. are you thinking about a/c? that would be a good place for a/c vent.
