How to mount aluminum dash

I am building a cheap bracket S10. Most of the truck is stripped. I want an aluminum dash for it. No AC, radio, ect. all I need is Tach, oil, water, volt, and my switch panel for fans, water, ignition and ect.

I have the metal and metal brake and welder here to make the dash, but how would I go about mounting it in this 84' S10? There is no cage in the truck, just roll bar.

Any help or ideas?

I was thinking either that or button head Allen bolts.

So I should just weld brackets or tabs off the cab and mount it that way?
