You had me intrigued until this part. Every custom dash I have ever seen in 
a race car is aluminum.

I have played with the idea of making one for my car, using aluminum. But 
when I realized my big Stewart Warner tach would fit in the original dash 
with a minor amount of work, I opted to keep the original. I have a dash 
out of an early car, all steel. Someday I will rework the dash to move the 
tach to a place where the steering wheel can't get in the way of reading 
it... Honest, I will!
