Lightbulb Pics: My version of Speedometer Bezel (Dual gauge)!!!

First you need to clear 3 screws to unbolt the Speedometer Bezel



Then you need a Dremel or something like this and cut backwards of the Speedometer Bezel



Now...you need to use your ability to mold a grill...



And do this, cutting 2 circles in the grill and in the upper back side of the Bezel





Next, use Super Glue to support the grille using Bicarbonate to do the chemical, this stuff in some points of the Bezel...dont forget to sand all around







Is needed to cut both pipes in the front to the end to do a 2 1/16", previously you do 2 holes in the grill then you put your 2 pipes placing 1 gauge to do a exact diameter..

Do the same thing to place in correct angle and position to the piping, helping you with Super Glue and Bicarbonate







Now you need a Spot Putty to fill all the Speedo











Its time to sand all the Spot Putty, do that until you have an uniform piece..





Priming the Bezel and the result:





Updates soon as possible...
