speedometer project

Bane and I went to the junkyard a while back, he nabbed some molding, i nabbed a speedometer, so i could calibrate and convert it to a 140mph speedometer, i finally printed up a test face, to see if i can get the size right, here is what i have so far


stock

with the "prototype" gauge face

doesnt speedhut make gauge overlays for fox birds now? itd be sick to have a boost, egt and cluster gauges all with the tbird logo on them and red lettering.

when i get bored, im gonna get boost, egt and cluster ones with red lettering with a red black widow symbol(like the one from the band Cold) in the middle. all matching, and the gauge pods will have red anodized bezels.
