Cutom dash and discreet radio install

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Probably not to everyone's tastes but...


I wanted working instruments in my 1940 sedan.


I already had a GPS speedo that project a digital speed indication on the inside of the windshield and even if it was installed as a wild guess experiment turned out very good. None of the other instruments worked...


So I made a paper template and came up with this using mechanical oil pressure and temp gages.


The radio is in the glovebox but on a hinge so can be opened up to gain acces of remaining space. It also has a back up camera feed. The speakers are in the middle of the dash and under the rear seat.



I'm bracing for the comments... :)

Nice work.  I;m a dirty neck hotrodder at heart so I like custom mods.


I've been rolling around an idea to put my radio delete plate in the 51 on some sort of setup to allow it to slide down and out of the way and put a modern radio in there area behind it.  As well as the USB connection for my Microsquirt EFI setup.  I'm thinking some sort of radio with a display screen that can incorporate a back up camera, satellite radio and the such.  Then again Microsquit can accommodate digital gauges on a tablet, thinking on a new gauge cluster doing that.
