The instrument cluster was custom built by myself
using aluminum angle, redwood and VDO guages.

Future plans call for wood across dash and on a custom
built center console, again by me.

This vehicle was a mechanical mess when I acquired it. The rear axle was so noisy you couldn't hear the radio, at least two of the lobes on the cam were flat, and there were NO brake parts on the rear axle!

On the day I purchased it, I drove it (Wow it runs!, ha ha), straight to the auto shop and had the rear axle replaced, the engine overhauled, emergency brake system installed, and the front suspension rebuilt.

I should have had the electrical system replaced too! About a year later the engine spun a rod bearing from driving to Denver with inadequate cooling and oil pressure. The dash had been cludged together and as such, the instruments weren't giving correct readings. Now you know why the custom instrument cluster (although I never did like the factory design anyway).
