    Was going to buy the sheetmetal for the face/top, but the steel suppliers 8' shear is broken. Might be a while, but I can do everything without it anyway (wiring, gauge install, radio install

    looks very similar to what i did with mine. the only differance is i went under the column and had a flat face, i didnt put an angle to it. looks like its coming along nicely!:D

    the angle matches the column (at 90 degrees). I finished the aluminum gauge panel w/ all gauges, indicator lights for turn signals and high beam, and switches for head lights, interior lights, wipers and windshield spritzer. I'm all proud about how well it turned out, so I was going to take a few pics, and my camera is missing.. and my laptop... god damned tweakers.
