I know all of us make small mods to the dash. I thought a post with nothing but dashboards in it could give others a look at gauge and switch layouts for future ideas even the little extras like radio's and gloveboxes.

First, let me say ,WOW guys. I'm really impressed with those dashes.
Here's mine. The car was built for racing first and street second, but sometimes I wish the speedo was a bit larger. You also may not need the master disconnect or fire plunger on your dash..

I suggest you ping member 'cwareham' and ask him to post a pic of his dash. Actually, he and his bride conspired on the design.

Nicest layout I've ever seen in an FFR,
IMO. I've already gotten their permission to shamelessly copy it. But mine's not done yet so I can't show a pic.

pilot/co-pilot setup. separate switches for each turn signal (green). (both "up" acts as hazzard.) separate switches for each cold footbox (blue).

one red for the heater, controled by wifie to be (?)

BE CAREFUL OF THE SQUARE TUBE JUST TO THE RIGHT OF THE CENTER OF THE DASH HOOP. BARELY CLEARED IT WITH MY SECOND FROM RIGHT GAUGE.

Lancair-

Your dash is simply awesome. It is the most period correct, original looking dash I've seen. What detail.

Not the best pic but here you go. Autometer vintage gauges in the street layout. Left of the steering wheel is the headlights and dimmer. Bottom row left to right...FFR supplied horn, FFR supplied lucas style turn switch, Aircraft/Race car style Off/On/Start switch w/flip-up cover, FFR supplied cooling fan override switch. Objective was to keep it simple.
