Merc Dash

One of our customers brought in an entire dash from a ‘49 Mercury, along with a hand drawn sketch, and asked us to design and make a custom dash for them. Of course we said, “No problem.” The main bezel is machined from a solid piece of brass, with vents on the right side to allow for A/C to flow. The gauge cluster features a red acrylic panel, that was painted, then machined, to allow for light to shine through the transparent panel in selected areas. This is only a mock-up, without the actual gauges behind the panel, but we were so pleased with how it turned out, we had to share.

Nice, huh?

This last one shows how the light behind the gauges shows through the panel.
