    Need to repaint but it's a Classic Instruments 40 cluster. Tachometer, GPS speedometer, all electric gauges in a 32 style dash in my A roadster. It works flawlessly.

    Very nice. What are your plans for a fuel gauge?

    I like to match the manufacture of the sender and gauge, I buy them together... they often come with bogus bezels, so I put the lighted fuel gauge in the passenger's kick panel so it need not match the dash gauges...

    Post a photo of the kick panel gauge if possible. Have you thought about filling the 40
    instrument panel with a dummy gauge?

    sold the '33 coupe, no pix... gauge had a black plastic bezel... gauge hole was filled with blackened plexiglass...
     
  13. I saw a simple 35/36 dash in a 32 Tudor once and it was magic.

    I love this thread. I've been planning my dash and interior ever since I started the build on my car 5 years ago. They say wheels and stance make a car. I say paint and interior (especially the dash) make the difference between a car and a great car.
    Keep them coming!

    FYI... a '35-'36 dash is wider than a '40... who knew.

    The thing that stinks about all this is it becomes an obsession. I never really gave it too much thought until my car is getting close to being finished. Now I'm obsessing over the details like gauges and stuff.

    I've been lucky and found some stuff that I've been looking for, but Stewart Warner gauges are certainly going to cost you if your looking for the popular ones. Temp gauges are going through the roof.
