Finally got the whole shebang installed. Well, mostly. I haven't hooked up 12 V power to the USB Type-C power supply yet. It's a Samsung adaptive fast charger and the Type-C port was extracted from a USB Type-A to Type-C adapter and hard wired to the charger. I also added two M6 threaded bosses to either side of the instrument binnacle and flocked it all. My intent is to get a Ram Mount ball or some such thing on the RHS with the power port for a more secure cell phone mount (or whatever). LHS maybe I can mount something temporary like a scan gauge plugged in to the OBD port (again, or whatever).

I'm not completely happy with the evenness of the speedo/tach needle illumination. It's tough to get right. The trick is to get the paint patch that's there on the under side of the needle just the right balance of translucency. I'll fight that battle again some other day. I have more needles and stuff lying around to experiment on when I'm bored with all the other projects I have kicking around.

How does the instrument hood come off? Like the mount idea and having a close charger port. CLEAN!!
