I am planning on five gauges. A monster tach for the driver, volt meter, oil temp, oil pressure and since it is street legal, a fuel gauge. Also two idiot lights. Oil light and alternator light. Only the tach will be in front of the driver.

On my circle track car I had the gauges clocked so that all the needles pointed to the right and were horizontal. This way with a quick glance. You could see a long red line. if somthing was not level you know it is off.

The other thing I did was the old fender blinkers. I had both set in line with the front of the car at the very end of the hood. So you are looking at the track not the dash and if somthing went wrong the light would be easy to spot.

The Red light was hooked to Oil press and the water press. You can blow raditor hose. Red was on you needed to stop, Yellow light was for things like alt and temp both you could keep running with out brakeing down.

New tires and wheels in the works. Should have them mounted and on the car this weekend. I will post pics next week.

I will have some leftover steel wheels to sell. Watch for these in the stuff to sell section.

Wheels were ready and I couldn't wait. Went with 31-10.50 general grabber AT2 in the back and 235/75-15 in the front. Mounted them on some polished centerlines. I will try to get some pics up this weekend.

Wheels and tires mounted. They look a lot better than the whites spokes previously on the car.

Roll it? Thanks for all the optimism! My plan is to always to keep her rubber side down.

Of course, that is assuming I keep her. I have my class 5 car just waiting for a restoration and some prerunning fun.
