I made a new console to remove some gauges from the top of my dash.Trying to clean up the dash . I have three Auto Meter 2 1/6 gauges that were made to mount with a ring and baseplate. I want to install them into the console. Is the a simple way to get this job done that one of you has done? IMG_20201121_195621.jpg IMG_20201121_195644.jpg

I found the easy way to install the gauges.Removed the cup that the gauges were in. There are two small studs on the back. Autometer cut the studs short to fit the gauge in the cup. I cleaned up the threads and ordered the mounting brackets and thumb screws. Had the cut the brackets.,but works fine.Thinking about putting a carbon fiber inlay on the front of the console.

Very nice! That's a great looking interior. Are those Scat Pro 90 seats? If so, can you tell me about mounting them? Did you use the Scat mounts?

Forget the Carbon Fiber treatment 'cause nobody knew what it was back in '65!!:unsure::giggle:

Thanks for the input. I decided to just leave it plain. Cleaned look.Still thinking about putting carbon fiber across the dash.I already have a carbon fiber insert on the dash bezel.
