I couldnt find it. as Ive mentioned in the past, the repros are of generally poor quality compared to the originals. there is NO comparison.

I asked around our club about those dash panels and as I expected, NOBODY has seen one. Maybe they weren't sold here.

somebody could probably step up and have 500 made. sure they would be a hit.........


the fact that you have to polish the aluminum is labor intensive.


stamped from stainless would be beautiful!

Here's an original one. Note the intricate interconnected circles and clovers pattern on the face. This one also has the two original correct Dunn water temperature and oil pressure gauges:




....and a close up of the Dunn logo on the center top edge by the light conduit wire notch:

Thanks for the heads up Brad, That's a nice one!

I had not seen one that showed the background pattern this clearly.

"Very old reproduction stock from the '80's"! Wait a minute, they aren't that old!
Neat looking though.
I suppose an oil pressure gauge isn't all that useful is it?
