    I ran into 3 problems.
    LOWER - First I removed the old dash, bundle wrapped each gauge wires and labeled them with tape.
    I removed the gauges and used the old dash as a template for the new one minus the gauge holes.
    The fabricator used a water jet to cut the profile of the dash and the screw holes.
    I gave him the location of the new gauge holes and size. I had 2 aluminum panels made (both upper & lower were identical).
    Uppers - I added fuel gauges to this dash. Fuel wires were located after the dash was removed.
    Problems - (1) fuel senders were not dual gauge
    (2) port fuel gauge wires were no good (Pain in ass to get wires to upper helm).
    (3) screw holes were stripped. I drilled every mounting hole (9) and inserted nutcerts.
    I now use black #8-32 machine screws for attachment.

    Great information....thank you! I'm looking to replace my tachometers with digital and also add fuel gauges to the upper helm. I'm gonna search out local sources to fabricate a custom dash. Thanks again!

    I'm using Faria Beede gauges. The upper helm has a sync gauge that doesn't work. I was not able to locate another one. I had two aluminum dashes made with the proper holes. I added fuel gauges to the upper helm and eliminated one hole. Both dashes $120 ($60 each) with cut holes. Water jet cut perfect fit and hole sizes.
Working...
