  12. 7-25-2013 6-50-15 AM.jpg 7-25-2013 6-49-55 AM.jpg Here is a dash I built for a '42 Willys pickup. Was out of necessity; had to have room behind dash for A/C, etc., but ended up making gauges easier for driver to see in really small cab.

    Titus - That wrap around into the doors looks great! Good work.
     
  19. Took me a couple days but I just made it through this entire thread. Awesome- I loved it. Too bad so many pictures are blank or deleted.. Is that a format thing with the recent update and maybe they'll come back? hope so.
    thanks to all of you that posted pics and descriptions. I got some great ideas outta here.

    Hi...looking to add a two guage panel to my 38 coupe' (It's in a 50's style) Like the look of the Moon panel (from their website) but can't tell anything about it. How thick is it? do you like it? What size are the holes? Thanks g
     
  21. Three late '20's to early '30's instrument panels that would look nice in an early rod dash.

    Falcon, maybe take a standard tach and change the face. I have disassembled some cheap swap meet gauges, and kicking around changing the face artwork and needle color to suit my taste. I didn't follow thru how to do art work done (computer label printing ?) Me not too computer savy. I did disassemble a cheap VDO tach and put the guts in an old SW case.

    I was looking at a 5" white faced Jaeger for an MG-TD on ebay just last week, was thinking about doing just that, but I missed out on it. Eventually I'll snag one and re-face it. This is what I want in my T coupester.

    Falcon,
    Love the look of those tachs. snagged a mechanical later model out of I believe a MGB. Jaeger 6000rpm. 5" 2 - 1 tach. At Syracuse swap meet. Guy has very rusty tach and speedo, says $40, no $20, no $10. I buy them. clean them up, tach works. Someday I might change the face. Taking off the bezel was real easy. I check them with my lathe and a digital tachometer. When you see cheap mechanical tachs buy them and take apart, not complicated. then you learn something. Get some ideas on changing the face plate and number style to your liking. good luck.
