This will be the last bolt on part I make before I get into chopping things about! I want a custom dash and wanna remove the speedo, so I needed something to house it in under the dash! Twisted Evil


I start with some 2mm sheet aluminium
The 66 Chop Top!!! - Page 3 Image010-4


Stick it through the english wheel a bit
The 66 Chop Top!!! - Page 3 Image013-4


Till it's a nice half bullet shape
The 66 Chop Top!!! - Page 3 Image007-6


Then do a second to match
The 66 Chop Top!!! - Page 3 Image014-4
The 66 Chop Top!!! - Page 3 Image015-3


Then weld em together
The 66 Chop Top!!! - Page 3 Image017-1


Clean it up a bit
The 66 Chop Top!!! - Page 3 Image018-1

Need a trim ring to go on the front! Started with 40mm X10mm flat. Stuck it through the rollers till it was round, then welded it. Then stuck in the lathe

Put it together

Now we need somewhere to mount the fuel gauge.

It'll be mounted in the middle of the dash after it gets a good polish, but you get the idea!

Cheers dude!
I've never been to college! I learn't the basics from the old blokes I worked with when I started. Then over the years I've just kept pushing myself to the next level! What I do for a living aint anythin like as creative as what I like to do! afro

I really think that someone with your talent deserves a huge pat on the back.... you should think about making bespoke one offs for people mate, you'd make a killing. That speedo mount is a work of art! Smile
