Here is how mine turned out. I used a non tach dash and some lights from Radio Shack. I have about $30 in it outside of the gauges. I am putting the volt and oil pressure in a console mounted pod.

Personally, I like yours WAAAY better than the one on ebay, and at a fraction of the the cost!

The one on ebay, they should have shown mounted in a dash. The way it is, it looks goofy (protrudes out too much), but maybe looks better once mounted.

My dash wants to be just like yours when it grows up. :)

Mike, I based mine on kvinklers, I just did the back a little different. I'll post a pic.

John, let me know if you want the detailed write up of how I did mine and exactly the materials. http://a7.cpimg.com/image/63/66/25882467-e0e7-028001E0-.jpg

Here's a link to a company that makes an "original-looking" 69 dash pod with 6 Autometer gauges instead of just 4: 69 Dash

I was going to put my own autometers in my old dashpod and add two on the console, but I think this looks much better.

JME makes a very nice product, I talked with Julio several times about this pod. I even bought his radio bezel. I just couldn't justify the $1100 that it costs from him. It may have even been more with the Ultralite gauges I used. I think I have about $600 in mine including the gauges in the pod and the other two for the console, all electric.
