Just remember....in building always have a fudge factor...in case of........

 

You can always tint the side and rear glass if you really don't like it that well, and it is hard to see inside , unless someone else picks it up.. :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:

 

A trick I learned years ago in photography...the camera never lies, but a good photographer can....... :D

 

What the camera DOESN'T SEE...... B)  B)

I don't think he is saying that something is off, Anne, he is just saying that if there is something you are not completely happy with you can "hide" it and move on.

Anne-

I think the dash looks fantastic. Remember, we are usually our own worst critics. If you aren't very happy with it you can set it aside for now and work on a different part of the kit. This way it gives you a bit of time to think about other ways to redo it, hide it, or whatever. Either way, your doing a great job. Just don't do like most of us morons and put it back in the box, put it back on the shelf and forget about it until you begin drawing SS. You'll never get any completed that way. Trust me.
It's coming along great.

Later-

I think it looks great. I think once you get the guage bezels in there and everything you will see it come together. think of it this way, Its one part. if you build every part like its the only part that will be seen then you will have a great model. keep going with this dash. if you decide you hate it, send it to me! I will use it lol B)

I think the second dash looks awesome! The gauge holes cut out so nicely too.

Don't beat yourself up to much. This is a hobby, it's meant to be fun.

I spent to much time stressing over a build that I couldn't get the steering to work or the car to roll.

My solution was that I glued the tires on solid one day and called it perfect. Then I quit building for 5 years just so it would be fun again.

 

Enjoy the Hobby!

 

Here's a photo of the perfect build that won't roll of the table.

Anne....it looks great to me...and once you get the whole dash finished it will be fantastic and the things you dont like you might not even notice anymore.  Also once the whole interior tub is complete you might not even remember what it was you dont like about the dash.  I cant wait to see it with the gauges placed in it.....Keep up the great work and keep on building!

I don't see anything wrong with it...in fact, that's a lot better than I could've done! You gonna put a little light behind the gauges so they'll be lit up?

Naa. Keep 'em comin'!

 

One thing just jumped out at me, but maybe you have a different plan than I foresee or have already thought of it.

 

Looking at your bezels, I'm assuming that you're going to do the gauge faces with a decal or print. Are the recesses for the faces deep enough to hold these as well as a clear lens?

 

Just another thought to chew on...if I were doing my bezels like this, I'd take it that step deeper into insanity and drill a hole in the center for a wire post, and make needles. But maybe you already thought of that, too. :D
