Thread: Custom Dash Opinions Wanted

    Custom Dash Opinions Wanted

    I planning to do some dash upgrades soon. I have my options narrowed down to these three. I'll be using the stock 62 dash bezel. I already have the carbon fiber insert for the combo speedo/tachometer plus four smaller gauges.

    The dash will be painted Ford Sandshell Beige to match the body color. The interior upholstery is already two tone beige and burgundy.

    What do you think of these options?

    Hey Pat,

    With your interior I like the beige with burgundy text. You should post a shot of your interior for those not familiar with it.

    Likin the beige with Burgundy as well. The white looks to hospitaly, while the beige looks more antiquey.. Pardon my spelling...

    Is that a Buick or is that a Falcon?

    I third, the beige and burgandy gauges.

    The white wouldn't match anything in the car.
    The burgandy and white although cool would grow old.. too much red.
    The beige and burgandy as long as they don't clash with the colors you already have would be a great touch..

    Are you doing anything else in carbon fiber??

    My only concern for you Patrick (though I did vote the same as everyone else) is that they only go up to 120 MPH.

    Well, if it was a GS with a 455, maybe. Or a Grand National, perhaps. But then I would give it back to its owner.


    OK, who broke rank and voted Burgandy on White?

    I guess I will be different. I like the burngdy text on the white faces. It just looks faster and your car definitely doesn't look antiquish. You have made so many fantastic upgrades and with your interior I think these would stand out. Now I will tell you, I am color blind. So that makes my opinion even stranger I guess. Badbird, Larry

    I haven't voted. I'll call AutoMeter and see if they can create the face for the burgundy on beige. That would look cool if the colors match. The only carbon fiber will be the dash insert. The metal part of my dash will be Sandshell Beige. The dash pad is already burgundy.

    I'm also thinking about welding up the ash tray and radio holes to smooth out the dash. This is still open for debate.

    You can play around with different gauge options here:
