More Dash Mods

The Yearone dash insert comes with the engine turned dash insert as well as a black plastic backing.  I would assume Yearone planned on fastening the plastic piece to the dash and then using the gauges to sandwich the two pieces together.  I however, cut the plastic backing a little larger than the width of the 3-3/8″ diameter gauges.  You’ll need at least this portion of the panel since the cutout in the aluminum piece is actually closer to 3-7/8″ which means the large gauges will slide completely through the panel.  The larger gauges fasten to the plastic piece rather than the aluminum.  Since this means the large gauges are recessed a bit, it makes all of the gauges bezels sit nearly the same height above the aluminum insert.
