Now the engine works fine...,but there is something else to do...the owner asked me to fit a coolant temp gauge, if its possible.This model hasn't got a gauge fitted in the dash originally.I said i will fit it,but i wanted to do it on a right way.I was thinking a lot how could i fit it to be visible and not to make modification on the original dash to ruin the originality.
The gauge is a Smith 52mm gauge in magnolia.
I thought i found a right solution...
Lets start it.
The gauge will sit in it with a small angle,to make it more visible...
Its needs to be painted to match with the colour of the dash.
I sprayed the primer on and rubbed it...i doesn't needed any filler on,ive done the metal work smooth enough... :)
Now i show you where is fitted in the car...
The owner likes it...i do...i hope you do as well...
