A new dash for a ‘67 Triumph. Plywood with a walnut veneer. The burl patterns are all faux finish. Finished with 5 coats of lacquer. All those holes for the gauges were a challenge.

Damn, that’s pretty.
It seems almost a shame to install the original Smiths gauges in it. The needles in the tach and speedo in the GT6+ (which had the same dash as the Spit) I owned bounced so much that they were barely useful.
And, yes, I agree with Dennis, let’s see the finished installation.

If the holes were a challenge, pray you never have to tinker with the electric system.

Q: Why do the English drink warm beer?
A: Because they have Lucas refrigerators
I loved my GT6+. I miss it to this day…
