Instrument panel insert

Where would I find an aftermarket instrument panel insert for my 1968 F100? I don't want anything to flashy but I would like a nice billet aluminum insert to replace my current instrument panel. Any ideas guys? I checked this site, but no such luck. Any of this site's affiliates carry anything like that? Email me if you need to. Thanks!

SA post removed. I misread your post. Didn't know you wanted something other than the stock panel replacement, I was in a hurry when I read the post. Let me rephrase: stock replacements are due after the first of the year.

Someone on this list made a custom dash for their effie (it was
a 67-72). They made a new dash insert and had aftermarket gagues. It looked great, and they had pictures of it posted in their gallery. I cannot recall who it was, however (sorry). Pehaps someone else remembers?

Thanks Bill,

I guess it wouldn't be that difficult to fabricate one. I have looked at a few places tha carry some rather fancy ones that are fairly expensive. If anybody remembers who custom made one, let me know, I would love to see some pictures.

Haneline Products makes gorgeous, bolt-in clusters with engine-turned panels, analog gauge sets, turn signal and hi-beam indicator lights, etc. http://www.hanelineproducts.com/gauge/57-74_ford_f100_pickup.jpg

Unfortunately, they are expensive. I got a quote on a panel for my '69, and it was about $600 (with choice of gauges, including electronic speedo and tach).

www.docsbolts.com also offers one's similar to that but I don't know the price but it cant be more than 600, can it? I emailed them for a pic and price but they never replied.

It looks like the Docs panel is just a stainless steel plate. Keep in mind that Haneline includes a new bezel, indicator lights, gauge set, and wiring. In the end, you probably end up paying about the same amount.

I liked the looks of the boeseengineering dash inserts, asked about the pricing and this is what I got.

"The prices for the 1967-72 Ford Truck are as follows:
$515.00 for the complete setup (Polished billet dash insert, VDO 6 gauge kit including electronic speedometer, tachometer, volts, water, oil, & fuel), & LED lights.
$150.00 for the dash insert itself.
$4.00 per LED light (used for high beam indicator & turn signals)
$275.00 for VDO 5 gauge kit
$80.00 for VDO tachometer.

This dash insert bolts up to your stock insert, which must be cut along the recessed lip. It is available for either VDO or Autometer gauge kits that utilize a 3 1/8" speedo & tach. and 2 1/16" smaller gauges."

Not too bad, but out of my price range, I'm just repainting my dash insert right now, the gauges suite me fine.

I am thinking that it can't be that hard to fabricate one out of stainless or aluminum. I will just use the existing bezel and cut the inside out leaving a nice edge to fasten the new insert to. And I know I don't need to spend 350 bucks on gauges!

How about bringing the aluminum out to the front of the opening? It might not look quite as nice but should be doable.
