Here are some early shots of the custom dash in my car being done by Detroit Speed and Engineering.

What do you think? Any suggestions on gauge layouts?

Thanks.

Yes it is an Ididit column. It is really a nice piece (and it should be for the price
.

Elmer,

I've been following the build-up on the pro-touring site, and I must say your car is fantastic! What kind of steering wheel is that?

BTW, I grew up not too far from you in Bloomingdale, and went to Lake Park H.S. back in the 70's.

Man that looks GREAT! Very, very nice!

Are there provisions for turn signals, blinkers, headlight switch, wipers, ...???

Looks like they had to fabricate a custom mount for the steering col. Is that true or does Ididit make a bolt in?

Regards,
Rob

Thanks for the kind words.

The Ididit column is available with all the necessary brackets to make it a bolt-in. However, Kyle created a plate that bolt's to the dash carrier to create a cleaner look.

The steering wheel is either a Budnik or Billet Specialties piece. Can't recall right now.

There are provisions for a windshield wiper and headlight switch, turn signal and hi-beam indicators and ignition switch.

I love it. I hope Detroit Speed does a bolt in version of it. The instrument panel is one of the big hangups on my car. I can't decide what to do. Yours looks incredible. What about the radio? does the panel have a provision for it?

The stereo will be in the console, eventually. Just trying to get it done so I can drive the damn thing

Thanks for posting the pic!

The nice thing about it is as I start to use the car, I can move the gauges around to where I want them.

You can see more of the car at http://www.detroitspeed.com under projects.

Take care,

Elmer

Elmer,

Which model Ididit column is that, if you don't mind my asking?

Do you have an updated pic of the dash from the other side of the col?

Thanks,
Rob
