The Rustang 2.0

Well i was going to wait till i was done but i thought why not put it out there to get some suggestions. I replaced the passenger quarter and figures while I'm at it ill finish all the body work so i can paint her. So far iv deleted most of the trim and gas cap. Cut about a 1/4 of an inch on both sides of bumper (so i wouldn't have to mess with the mounting brackets) got some hood pins front and rear sway bars one inch lowering blocks thinking about getting rid of the back up lights and putting some leds under it for when i reverse so i can still see. Shaved the quarter panel reflectors got some new trim for the grill area. And I'm thinking about getting some new gauges haven't decided yet

I just have to throw this opinion of mine out there: I think the look of the stock 67/68 gauges are just awesome. I personally love the center piece where you can't see the "hub" where the needle connects. I don't know why but that has always appealed to me.

Obviously I like Auto Meter. But they have a huge selection of styles. I put in 2 1/16" Fuel, Oil Pressure and Engine Temperature with 5" a Speedo and Tach. They have the correct ohms fuel gauge and the speedo bolts right up. The temp and oil pressure senders bolted right also. The only challenge was hogging out the speedo and tach to 5" in the original instrument panel. The smaller gauges fit right in. I fabbed gauge holders for 5" ones out of a strip of aluminum. Wired the back lights to the oem lights circuit to get dimming from headlight switch and all new wires for senders. Also used a relay for the gauge 12v power.

It was right around $500 for all five gauges, from JEGS. I bought them over a couple of months. I bought a new instrument panel and modded it. It wasn't hard just a little time consuming. You only have to modify the holes on the instrument panel for the 5 inch gauges, the 2 1/16 gauges fit fine. I used a dremel tool to modify the holes. Also I used a small drum sanding attachment in a drill press to clean up and smooth the openings. Some people have made these mods by cutting the Auto Meter glass off and inserting from the back of the instrument cluster. I chose to make the opening fit the whole gauge and insert them from the front, preserving the glass and not exposing the gauge or having a plastic factory lens. You have to modify the metal back plate. I fit all my gauges in the plastic instrument panel first, then marked the metal backing for cutting.
You have to cut openings for all of the gauges. I found it best to keep the metal back, it gives it needed structure as well as support for the wiper switch.
The mods for the 5 inch gauge bracket was with 1/8 aluminum bar about 1 inch wide. I just drilled a hole for the speedo cable connector and bolt holes, then bent with a vise so it would secure it. I'll take a better picture so you can see the large gauges mounted from the front better.
It's awesome being able to see everything and get accurate readings, the Auto Meter gauges each have a light bulb cover, so you can go green or amber for the lighting. I found many different colored wire at home depot to keep it all separated, as well as a bunch of blade connectors.

My Uncle is a business guy, started a sheet metal fabrication business (in Morgan Hill, if you know where that's at) from scratch with a business partner. Now he has a 2 million dollar house in Saratoga. I could probably get some start up from him.. I could probably also see if he has extra warehouse space. There are also places that help start up businesses with funds and other stuff.

The hardest part is finding clientele. I don't know too much about this area but I've seen a LOT of older folk, I don't really think they'd be interested in performance or custom cars lol.

Ha yeah well your area is pretty much a bunch of rich old people. But in walnut creek/ concord / pleasant hill area there are a million ricers and as much as i hate it that would probably be most of the clients i don't think it would be to hard to get work just post an ad on cl or just go to meets and get a fb page and some Business cards
