OK folks, , , it will be a great accessory for my BEAST. Now I gotta decide on Voltmeter, and oil pressure gauge, or water temp gauge, , or combo gauge, , , decisions, decisions, decisions, , ,what brand is best, , , how to wire em up, ,


Dang this is gonna be harder than my lil pea brain can handle (hahaha), I'll post pic when I'm done. I'm hoping it'll be bison brown, , , ,but maybe spray paint will serve that purpose, , dunno yet

I wish that I could have found a dozen of them.


it has made me wonder about getting a mould made from that thing, before it gets shipped off?


I know of 3 more guys that want one...

I thought about getting a new cover and seeing if someone could use it with a picture of the Firecreek cover to try making 1 similar

I say we start a THREAD asking for help from ANYONE with experience, or contacts, or knowledge on how to do this. I'm on-board with getting something figured out, , ,dunno if its feasible but worth a "meeting-of-the-minds" for sure. It definitely sounds like there is a niche that could be filled, on a small scale. Are the ignition panels on the 1800's similar enough to cover a "need" there too??

I think it would be doable, just need someone with engineering degree in plastic or whatever it needs made from. I am going to go look at price of a new cover as I would want someone to have a good example of size and fit

I am 99.9% sure I can make a 3D drawing in Solidworks if I can get my hands on one to "reverse-engineer" the dims.
