    Wanted to mount three gauges but just wasn’t keen on using the little 3 pod mount hanging below the dash. So, I thought why not where the radio delete plate was and came up with this:

    96E4FF10-4B29-4EA5-AD63-3024A8124EE3.jpeg D4268839-63F8-4607-A31C-75736F299CFD.jpeg 9C1AD913-4557-4FA7-831A-B4FF846E0E7E.jpeg 951FFD21-F581-4616-BB3A-8676DA41A954.jpeg

    The last pic shows the finish detail on the custom mount I made. To get that slightly pebbled texture I just held the spray bomb about 2 feet away and did light passes. About 3 or 4 times with time to dry in between.

                Very nice work.
                Who needs a radio when you have a big block?!?

                        I got; no radio, no gauges, no back seat, no passengers, no worries;
                        I got; dual 3" full length pipes, a clutch, 3-in/3-out Dynomaxers, and overdrive;
                        I just drive.

                        But if I had gauges, I think I would like them to look just like yours, 4mulas

                          My 62 came with a radio delete, so I replaced the speaker grill with a plate with gauges and accessory switches.


                          And threw away the speaker grill. What an idiot!!!
