I wanted to get rid of that stock radio in my 65 and needed to fill the space so this is what I came up with.

I'm going to paint it all black and get rid of the chrome that goes around it since it does't go all the way around.

What do you all think??

That's what I wanted to do. What does it look like in back? I couldn't figure out how to get the fit. Did you have to take off the whole dash?

Yes I have the dash completely out, i'm doing a ground up resto on it, Here are a couple of pics:

backside:


Without the cover:


What I made to put the gauges in:


it's 9" long, 3 3/8"wide, with 1/2" flanges on each end.Some minor grinding on this was needed and some cutting on the bottom the cluster itself was needed.
First thing my wife said was "it's not centered, then once I put the cover on she saw why.
