03-28-2009 08:46 PM Almost looks like a dashboard.......
All the cups are wellded in.All the filler pieces are welded in.An hour or so of grinding,and it almost looks like it supposed to.Just have to make all the cut outs in the lower for the a/c vents,and the headlight switch and wiper switch.Was thinking of makeing a glove box too,on the passenger side of the upper dash. Truth be told,this is actually the 4th version of a dash for this car.Just didnt like where the other designs were going.I am pretty happy with this one.......finally.

03-27-2009 10:01 PM Set into the dash.....
Got the speedo and tach set into the dash and tack welded.I ended up cutting the cups do that there is a little over hang,or hood at the top of each gauge tapering down to the 1/4" round rod at the bottom.Started to make pateerns for some of the filler pieces.

03-27-2009 09:56 PM Ring around the gauges.....
Welded 1/4" round rod to the edge of the gauge cups ,so they will have a rolled edge when blended into the dash.
