Dash Insert

Slowly keep picking away at the 47 delivery,got this done this week,have access to some equipment felt they came out pretty good.The bowtie insert will go where the clock was,(someone else did that for me on a computer controlled mill),making a 4 gauge panel, can't decide between 4 or 3 gauge panel and use idiot light for alt. Feel 4 gauge panel maybe to crowded.

HEY ZONK: I had the orginal instruments die in my 1938 Lafayette street rod. I went with a five digit digital instrument panel from Sumitt Racing and made a black cover panel out of plastic. It worked out really neat because it looks black until engine starts and then digital gauges light up thru black panel. The whole digital panel came as a kit with all senders and everthing required. It was manufactured by WWW.nordskogperformance.net Check it out! GOOD LUCK....DAVE
