  • Speedo / Tach / Gauges: Speedster dash glovebox?

    I have been fixing up a Speedster dash for the Possum Smasher. I noticed the frame has opening for glovebox. Has anyone put a glovebox from another '55 dashboard in a Speedster dash? Looks like a very straight forward project. Might have to build out the door a bit, maybe use the plastic cut out from dash itself. I am also using the cigarette lighter hole for a fifth small gauge. I am adding a voltmeter and moving gas gauge over to the lighter hole.

    Looks like I might be in uncharted territory. Who would dare to cut up a Speedster dash? Me, I guess.

        Someone will be angry with me. It really is a well used dashboard. Plastic is cracked and turnings are scratched and pitted. I was originally looking for a 56 to 61 Hawk dash but this came up for sale.
