Thanks, let me know if ya find any. I pm'd ya a while ago, did ya get it?

Chopped and painted 740 T from my old car lives on..



Ya I got the Stack gauges...never seen that many wire on a gauge before haha, will be adding a matching coolant temp gauge.





Holes to put gauges into, need those I guess, the pillar will be AFR and boost



Some NOS fender emblems, these jumped out at me because there is no engine size on the bottom, which is odd. Needs a 5.3 there!

It's do-able.

Vinyl - Dave Barton did 'em for me. I think he attempts to come close to the original font. Your 2's and mine/his look pretty similar.

Dave is the man, he nailed on your emblems I think. I'll hit him up. Thanks!

Shouldn't be a problem. I cleaned the emblem up, painted it, detailed the 'dental molding' at the top - and then stuck on his decals.

Perfect, thanks for the tip. These are NOS emblems with a touch of shelf wear so shouldn't need much.

Is that a legit three pod or a repro?

It's an Autometer, fraction of the cost, not as cool, but I just am having trouble justifying the cost of the repop, and original is inunobtainium and even harder to justify the cost. I can see it if you are doing a real restoration, but this is just a "resto-mod" car. I will have to make a nice plate to mount it to. Dave Barton made a very nice one off repop of the rally gauge, and I will probably mount it in a similar way to his, but black anodized aluminum base and maybe a textured wrap over the pod.
