Haha, I dont see why not... The gauge is big enough and right in the center..
Go vern go!!!!
Atta boy ....
I dont wanna hear any crying when you stab the bottom of that cluster into your right knee.
SYCO, I knew that was gonna come. I guess thats the price that has to be paid right? Me and Vince got the steering colum mounted and secure. Gotta say this thing is starting to come together. Now I can start on the driver side of the dash. These late nights are killing me but its the only time I can get down to the shop and put in some hours. I should be able to get the dash all done by this weekend.
look'n good buddy, tell me about the late nights, I sure here you on that one!
Sonds good Lod, something about you guys' shop, it seems like we're never able to get out of there before 1AM!
Now thats so true. I got outa there tonightat about 12:45. Got one more pannel to go on the dash. Next week when I have 4 days off I should get alot more done. Im gonna finnish the dash in the am. I realized how easy it is to make one side look good. Matching the other side, well thats a P.I.A... Just gotta take your time thats all. I'll get pics up later
Man Vern it's good to see you and Vince chompin away. You guys are really making some progress.
Oh yeah Rog has been doing some work on his Ford too. Just keep the momentum going. Now I need to get on it and work on mine.
I gotta get my ass over there to BS w/ you guys. Were on 2 dif schedules tho. You guys are night owls and I leave for work at 4am!
When the lights are on, someone is home...Got the dash all tacked in, colum mounted and guage sitting in the pod.. Next, finnish spot welding and mud. Wont need not alot of it either. It came out good. nice and smooth. At work right now and camera died last night. Pic's to come.
Well she is almost ready for the Mud. Got the last piece in place. It needs something around the steering column where it meets the dash, I think. I'll come up with something. So what do you guys think? Good, bad, ugly???
Lets try again.
I guess its not gonna let me post pics.
I can see the pics. I like it man, good job.
I guess there was a problem last night....
Lookin good vern....mud it up and lets hit the road.
Looking good Vern !!!
My Dodge tub roadster is on my public profile, have not worked out the picture bugs yet.
Started in on the steering AGAIN. I picked up a box from an early chevy pick up like the box that the Durant has on it..Its way to freakin big. So its back to the Corvair box. Cant wait for the swap at Turlock. Need to pick up some steering joints so I can get back at it. Wife is kinda ticked off due to the nights that I come in at 3 am. She told me "No more comming home at 3 am." The next night I came in a 2 am. Nope wasnt good enough. Man I just cant win. Im just glad Im not working on it in my garage.
In my opinion, that's looking to be the coolest dash I've ever seen in a T. VERY well done.
Thanks tfeverfred. I was thinking that it might be to big of a guage for the Dodge but as it started to come together I saw that it was be just right for the roadster.
Last night I started on the trans tunnel. Light work but Im runnng out of time. Only 22 workable days for me until LV. I'l have some more pics later tonight.
Looks good Vern.
Well I got the trans tunnel done last night. It sucked trying to get under that dash to weld it up. kinda think that I shoud have done the trans tunnel first. Well learn as you go on your first build right? Pics to come
Well hear it is...
