I find a vacuum gauge makes tuning easy IF you run a carb.

I would also install a Hour gauge since you will start it "brand-new"....


BTW,your list is missing

If you want the cool factor, EGT???or maybe diff temps?? Air speed indicator or artificial horizon. But I think your list covers the important stuff, to allow you to shut down before damage.

I dont want any bling bling, just simple and straightforward. I think EGT and diff temps are not a concern since I wont be going over 20 mph most of the time.

RPM is one gage I think you should have. A switch board will be needed. Winch, but that can come later. Fuel cell, should be on the list. You already have the seat belts. The only thing I see that is not listed is your skins. What are your plans there? I'm looking at bullet proof glass right now for the sides, and sheet metal on the floor.

I'm hoping to find a fuel cap with a gauge in it, kinda like on a harley. We'll see.

When you say air pressure what do you mean. What air pressures would it be monitoring?

a tach is on the list. Lexan will be used for front and rear windshields. Sheetmetal will be used everywhere else.

Fuel Cell does need to be added to my list for pricing and fuel pump. Winch will be later.

Here is another dash. I like the way floor is done here. It doesn't look to hard, plus it is screwed on so you can in there from the top if needed.

Sand rails do not use power brakes. Just standard CNC or Neal pedals usually. JJ
