Custom Instrument Cluster

I am in the process of installing a custom Autometer gauge cluster. Pics are worth a 1000 words, so here goes.

It is a lot more labor intensive than most people think. If it wasn't, a lot more people would do it, right.

The number 2 pic, you can see on the top plate, the hole saw caught the metal, and wrinkled it, so I had to make another one. The second one was a lot easier, since most of the shaving had been accomplished on the first on to get it to fit.

Getting there, still have a few more things to do.

Any comments, or ideas?
