Default 1965 Dash

So I updated the dash and was wondering what everyone thought about it.

That looks great and you have added a clock as well. What brand gauges are those and did you make the aluminum turned panel yourself?

I like the pattern on it.

I wanted to keep the dash original but no luck on a clock and still needed the tach. So I seen one like it on the web so thought I would give it a try. I had to have the clock changed a little bit to match the Classic Instrument gauges.

You did an awesome job on your instrument panel! The only thing I would change is using a 0-4000 tach instead of a 0-8000 tach. (Assuming you have a V6 under the hood, not a V8).
