This is part three of a series of posts on the making of a custom aluminum dashboard to fit into any 1929 Ford Roadster. Click here for part one on the concept, and part two on the jig and fixtures.  There is also a 1932 version available.

The photos below show a custom dashboard bolted into an original 1929 Ford roadster, using the original hardware and positioning.  To finish off the installation is an Auburn instrument panel inserted into the custom dashboard.

This post follows up a previous one on the making of this custom dashboard  and another on the design concept.

Other custom Ford work includes an aluminum 1932 radiator shell and Bonneville-style grille insert. To compliment the classic style of the radiator shell, we decided to build some custom panel work.
