Well..... it looks like half your dash is gone.

It looks like you have a good concept. I like the gauges on the "upper dash/lower windshield" area. Very different. Are they a little easier to see since they are closer?

Cant wait to see the final product

I currently have my entire dash (excluding my tach and speedo) taken out. Its pretty rusty, so I am going to replace it with 16ga steel and make my own. I just have to get around to picking up some steel.
