I have been trying to think of ideas to make my dash look cool! I know you can buy new gauges, and dashboard covers, but what makes yours stand out?????

Mine was a piece of aluminum cut and bent the top and bottom 90's in it, then it was a bare scetch pad for me. I moved the glovebox over, center with the seat and put the speaker to the right of it. Then all the gauges and so on. Here is a pic of it not so complete. The tach and speedo holes still aren't cut yet. But you get the idea.....

All of my gauges are AutoMeter Ultra-Lites. They run about $30-60 for the 2 1/16" gauges.

I have fuel, volts, oil pressure, air pressure (OBA), trans temp, & water temp.
