What's the reason for the Air/Fuel gauge?

Do you have a turbo on the motor? If not I see no reason for that gauge, but clean looking install otherwise.

I was in the garage last night, I guess I didnt even think about it. I did forget the high beam indicator light, got it all tore apart, going to cut a new cluster on the plazma tommorow. I was thinking stainless or aluminum got a bunch laying around maybe make both and try them out. thanks

i'd think it'd help with tuning the carb, if it's set to lean or rich

Man, that looks great! Is that an electric or a mechanical speedometer?

The only thing I would do differently is put the oil press and water temp in the middle rather than AFR and fuel, but that's just personal taste. If I get crazy one of these days, I might give this a shot! Thanks for posting up the pics!

If you already have the file you might want to run off a couple dozen of those. I'm guessing they'd sell pretty quickly. The market exists here, and if you're having them flame cut they should be fairly reasonable to produce.

I could ask the boss if i could make some and sell them. He can be kind of stinge. he would want me to sell them for a fortune. I could make 50 of them for about 50 bucks out of 16gauge cold rolled. thats what I used. I guess I could make ten or so and just send them to who ever wants one. cost what about 5 bucks to ship in one of those envelopes. If there is some interest I can make more. Iam not going to sell them though. im not on here to make money, just show what I have done. thanks

I'd be interested, $5 + materials is a steal. I probably have enough spare gauges lying around to make it work too. The only thing I would request would be the smaller light holes to be 1/8"-1/4" so I could use smaller LED mounts for the indicators and whatnot. I can always make them bigger, hard to make them smaller and still look that clean. Great project!

I would be very interested as well. I would also be interested in the piece that replaces your radio. These look very good.
