Hey Roddo,

I like the placement mate and the gauge spacing is tidy.

Its really big though mate, why did you make it square at the back? looks like it will have a Heap of room in behind the gauges? Why didn't you taper off the top back at like a 30 degree angle? this would make the back wall come to just below where the bottom rivet is on the first photo and kinda line up with the windscreen a little.

You could throw your maps on it to if it tapered off.

Good on you have having a go Roddo

It looks like your fixing it down at the back. is there a fix at the front somewhere too? I think ii only fixed at the back for mine but it a little smaller but it works fine.

Good on ya mate.

Looking good, got to do one myself for new temp and oil gauge they are 2 5/8" so finding off the shelf pod is bl#$dy near impossible!

How did you mount to dash?
I just can't bring myself to screw into a perfectly good dash

cheers for the feedback
i was going to taper it but was just easier to make straight. its simple and effective if i did it again i would of made a small taper but oh well.
its only secured at the back.
