You have the procedure and the nice thing is your car isn't needed as a daily driver. Therefore you have until spring to finish.

OK guys here it is.

Tell me what you think for a first time at doing this kind of mod.
I will post pics later of the final install with gauge.......the second gauge may not come until next year.

Looks good, just needs a little very light sanding and just another light coat of paint and it will look even better

But not bad Looks good!

Thanks. I think it turned out pretty good.
I figured you'd say that it needed sanding and recoating.
It shall be done.

That thing really came a long way. Do us a favor though and snap a teaser pic with it sitting on your dash Please?

Too shiny. Dull it up. It'* goign to be in the direct sunlight. And the finish won't match the rest of the interior. Hold your spray can farther away and use VERY light coats 10 minutes apart.

Well yes it did turn out a little too shiny but I can live with it.

Maybe a WCBF meet day project.

So here it is in place.
