I like my truck looking like it came to me - I'm just fussy like that - so here is my solution for getting some extra gauges into the dashboard. I also don't like adding holes, nor did I want to lose or ruin my radio blanking plate... sooooo....

I'll let the pictures do the work...

I wish I had 1/4 of your MacGyver-ness. That looks pretty damn sweet. Can you mold a whole cruiser tub from your homemade mold? :D

very cool!

I'm working at a place that has a 4'x8' cnc machine. Other than new speaker covers and gauge cluster, I need to figure out what to make before I move on to a better job. Your project just gave me a couple of good ideas...

Wow. Would you be willing to make another, for a fee of course? I'm a willing customer.

I'm hoping to add some real guages as well and wanted to hide them where the radio used to be but have nothing near the skill to do something like that.

Really, really impressive.

What kind of CNC is that? I have a MaxNC Model 15 and love it. Great for making small and medium sized parts.

I think you need to offer that entire setup for sale. That is cool as hell.
