      Something like that is what I was thinking of but I have not been able to find a tach that small.  Try jcwhitney.com... they've got a number of two inch tachs and they're not all that expensive... just like our cars  ; that's where mine came from.  The wood grain on the dash is a nice touch.  And thank you... it's "Con-tact" made by Rubbermaid and available in the "domestics" or "housewares" departments at K- and Wal-Mart, Target, etc.  If you get some, just be sure you clean the "apply to" surface really well with something like Fantistik and/or rubbing alcohol.
       
      Thanks  You're more than welcome!  Bill

        the panel lamps' reostat and the fabrication of a sub-panel of satin-
        black painted hardboard (Masonite).

        I can't get the photos to open.

        I was planning on doing the same thing with my boost guage. Since the
        speedometer has reference marks I wasn't planning on installing a
        tachometer.

        But I was wanting to see what it looks like. I was going to take a
        piece of ABS plastic, cut a hole in it, secure it to the dash with
        the sheet metal screws over the blankout panel then cut a hole
        through the dash.

          Good point, but does your speedo have the under 5K marks or the over 6K? If you�re into boost, might as well know how badly you�re �twistin� the tiger�s tail!�

          Don�t use screws. It makes a much cleaner installation if you use one of the �Goop� products; Carpenter�s, Plumber�s, etc., they�re all the same and available in any of the �big box� stores paint/adhesives section. You can also use the original �Shoe Goo,� of which all the others are merely packaging variations, and you can find it in the sports department� it�s intended for tennis shoe sole repair: tough as nails and stick like a Yugo does to the road! over the blankout panel then cut a hole through the dash. Enlarge the hole in the dash first� it�s easier.
