Working on my wiring and I had a local trophy shop engave some plactic for me. I plan to put led in the holes and lights under the engraved area. Hope this may help someone with a dash idea.  Tom Y

Ron, Mine did not have as many as Eds. But as you can it has less now. I laid it out with what I wanted.  Tom Y

Tom,
I've been thinking about the dash thing myself and wondering how I would do it.  I really like your idea and it looks like it turned out really well.  I'd be interested in a "night time" shot at some point when you have lights hooked up to see how it looks.  Great thinking there ...

That looks great, Tom. I guess you had seperate L/R turn signals or rewired?

I'm planning to move or parallel the turn signal indicators and the brake light to above the dash pod somehow. I must make a great effort to see them in their current location. They should almost be line-of-sight, imho.

Here is a photo of our new instrumant panel. The LEDs above the Speedo & Tack are the warning and information LEDs (Turn signals, Low air, Low oil, hot engine, Brake lights, etc.) The "STOP NOW" warning lights such as low oil, hot engine and low air also have audible warnings. The "STOP LATER" warnings such as low tag, no charge, do not have audibles.  The other phot is the instrument panel at nigh iluminated with red LEDs.  Jack
