Nicely done. :)

The new panel is done. To avoid having to cut up the back side of the cluster housing, I had to mount the new gauges down low, instead of centering them. Also need to space the speedo out…. It’s too thick to be mounted flush like the two smaller gauges. I plan on painting the panel with black wrinkle paint.

I had to go back and look at the panel. Makes sense why you mounted them low.

Looks good.
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
