The dash that came with the car has been kicked around for 10 years and got pretty scratched up so I decided to redo the engine turning. Everyone seems to have an opinion on how to do this so here is my opinion (not really mine I researched and liked this one the best). The tool is nothing more than a 3/4" wood dowel. I used fast setting superglue to attach a 3/32" thick disc of leather to one end and used Permatex course valve grinding compound. I had to play with this for a bit until I got the pressure and dwell time right; then went at it. It took probably most of a day to do.

Next I can cut holes for the instruments and start wiring. Thanks to Roland for assisting me with the alternator wiring.

The past few days I've been working on throttle and choke hook up. Finally came up with something that should work. The choke is off the Guzzi but I made a modified lever. This will be operated by a pull knob/cable on the dash. The lever will pull on the choke but not lock it so it will release when I let go of the knob. I rebuilt the carbs and have those mounted also. I'm now starting the wiring. This will test my patience.

I have a pair of polished valve covers that came with the car. They will make for more Bling.
