    Just wanted to see if anyone has a Stewart Warner mate gauge panel installed in a 32 dash.
    Not sure how it would look. Just seeing if anyone has some pictures. Tried searching.

    Thanks, Chris

    The Mate is like a miniature Hollywood, with only three gauges in a line. I've never seen one in a '32 dash.
     
  4. I've seen the panel at a swap meet but never saw one installed in a Deuce. HRP

    It would be kinda small I think. You could line more gauges up on either side of it as well. I make photocopies of gauges and cut them out, then lay them on a bare dash to design the layout. See if you like it.

    I think you misunderstood. You can make your own copies, lay them out on your own dash, and decide for yourself if you like any of the layouts.

    If the actual gauges don't copy well on a xerox machine, use the images from a catalog. You may need to bump up the copy size a bit to make them actual size. I have old Stewart-Warner catalogs I make copies from. New Speedway catalogs have pics you could use.

    Here is a picture. I went with the mate for something simple. Now if I could only find a SW Wings water temperature gauge.

    I'm going to use the S/W straight 5, if I hadn't already changed directions I would go with this.......its being sold by Sugarcityspeedshop.com and made in the US byGrace and Company, there is a picture in the back of Rodder's Journal #60.
    I love the one with the two raised boss's for switch s.
