    Only been out last two evenings so haven't gotten too much progress. I have the interior about wired up. The gauges are now done except for hooking up the sending units, hooking up the grounds and power leads and locating the turn signal wires. Then I can move to the engine wiring. Maybe get to fire up the four fiddy four in the next four or five days if things work out well. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif Gots to do my best to fire it up before Burt fires up his motor /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Thanks, I waited quite a while until I could get these gauges - just couldn't resist after seeing a few 67-72's with the in the bezel.

    These are the Phantom series. Unfortunately they stopped making the 3 3/8" size gauge that fit directly over the steering column.

    That is the series that I thought they where and the ones I want. When did they stop making the 3 3/8?

    Very nice indeedy! Great work on the gauges. I love the paint color you selected too. Keep the pics coming.

    So are there any technical hurdles to get your acc pedal hooked up due to the engine bulge in the firewall?
    Just curious.

    Not sure why they stopped making that size, maybe lack of demand - sure works excellent in that spot on our dash though. Heard they weren't being produced any more about three months ago, I know a guy who bought a couple off e-bay when he was able to find them, but Jegs and Summit don't have any left.

    The accelerator pedal still will work just fine, might actually be best that mine is the older hard linkage style. If I have to change any of the hard linkage, that will be easy to do. The linkage in the engine bay looks like it will mesh with the carb good also.

    I just looked on Summit's site and they show a 3 3/8 oil gauge /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Cool. Jegs also shows them and I called Summit and they do have them in stock - that is great to know they are still out there.

    Had to move my speedo to the left side, forgot the speedo cable comes in on the left side of the dash and wouldn't work easily on the right side of the bezel.
