    What do you guys think of this. I'm not sure I've seen a speedo like this one. Also noticed that the temp gauge and the amp gauge are different. Well different that what I've seen and have.

    The speedo, temp and Amp gauges are from a 1966 Barracuda.

    Ok, thanks...I think that I'm going to try and use that. My heap isn't original anyways and it goes up to 120 instead of 110. I've got a 65 cluster also for more parts. Well, you wouldn't have an extra fuel gauge from a 66 would you. If they fit easy enough in the 64 cluster dish/box or what ever it's called. I'll send them all off to get refurbished. The trip meter is neat feature.

    Ok, I got the dash yesterday and got it apart. The 66 stuff was modified greatly.........I probably won't be using that. Which is fine, that wasn't really what I was after. I was after the trim and the piece to left of the cluster.

    By the way what's the best way to clean up the aluminum trim?

    This what my dash looks like now. I think that once I send the cluster face and the headlight square off and have the gauges redone. I think it will look good in there. On of these years I would like to put a padded dash in it.

    So, there aren't any early A people here that's redone the trim on there dashes? I cleaned on them some tonight and it looks like there is paint in the groove part. Some it if it come off when I cleaned it. Have you guys repainted that area or did you take all the paint off?

    Well, if you look at the pictures.......no they just don't swap over. They modified it to get it done including the dash.

    I just got the trim put on. I think it looks good. I'm needing to send the square piece off with another cluster bezel to get redone.
