As it turned out, I had had the same thought as Noel, but he had come up with a different layout (see below).
|Dash style by Noel Hirst!|
I still have to decide on which warning lights and switches to use and where to put them, although I now have some ideas on the type of switches and the black warning lights that Noel had used gave me food for thought. As posted earlier, I have also decided to go with white faced dials, rather than black, even though Noel's look brilliant in black. However, I may also go for black bezels and red pointers, like his.
And what a worthwhile visit it was too. Not only did I clarify my 427's dashboard dial design, but I also came away with some great advice from Noel and a clearer view as to what I should do on some of the build - key points are have a clear view of how the car will look and order in plenty of time to allow for delays in parts delivery.
