The tinkering is never done!

Had a custom green Shelby style console for the EXP with the standard 2 holes, decided to do a custom Jarrah veneer over the aluminun base and add a third spot for a mechanical temp gauge I had that matched the SW repro ammeter and oil pressure gauge, as we all know how exact the stock temp gauges are...!!! 😀

An afternoons "enjoyment time" after the work week.... next to get it installed and hooked up!

Very nice.

I have been building my Console for a few hours a week - taken months for me to do. Getting closer now. I also have used some of the veneer you (Mert) provided to me.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Thanks Kerry, coming from you very high praise...

A question for you, I'm looking for the copper tubing for the mechanical oil pressure gauge, to fit the Stewart Warner gauge. Know a source locally? Most the kits I see are "new and improved" nylon, which will only yellow, get brittle and it ain't as good as copper to me. And I want the OEM/old school look...

The one I have "works" but is all bent to %&^(* after the shipper wound it too tight, kinks and twists I'd prefer not to see in the engine bay. And I prefer not to reuse the olives... any tips appreciated.

I think it is 1/8" tube but not sure, looking into that this weekeknd...

Used to be a place called Flexi drive Mert they used to sell the copper line, or try a MG/jag parts dealer. Someone like XK-unlimited in the US would have these for the old XK sports cars etc. Or Jag-daim down south may be worth a try
