Well when I started the title I was going to do more fiberglassing to make it fit the way I wanted.. but I found this nice piece of plastic that saved me a ton of work.

Interesting suggestion.. I will take a look at what it may look like that way and what is possible.

thanks for the suggestion

Any thoughts of using the wedge-rings here to kind of angle them up and towards the driver's side? That would look pretty boss, and functional too.

took a look at the posibility to have the gauges mounted on the back of the bezel.. There just isn't enough room in there. they are a real tight fit in that DIN slot even with it dremeled out....

I don't think I will be able to angle them up for the same reason.

Thanks guys.. hopefully I will have pictures of it installed tomorrow if it is not too dark after work.

I painted the other trim pieces the same color so that they all match.. it was a pretty close match to the stock color

How on earth did you color match the other dash pieces? or did you paint them all over as well? I definately think that's the coolest thing.. again it would look siiiick with the recessed gauges but if i got in your car and saw that'd i'd definately be impressed. Make me one =) hah

Nice job.. Looks very good.. One question how is the viewability of the gauges? Can you see them and read them both there while driving?

Yeah I painted all those center pieces with as close a match as I could find...

To prep the other pieces I just wet sanded with 600 grit paper... for the modified piece I primed and sanded with the 600 grit paper then sprayed away
