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.
