it's a Mustang GT wing for my '96 'Vert.
Everyone got all excited for a stock wing.
In my best Nelson voice, "Ha Ha."

Here's a view from the driver's side and the passenger seat.
No clue what the angle is, I sat in the seat and positioned one and then angled the other to match.
Gauges go in tomorrow if I get a chance.
I can make more but it will cost dearly.
Tons of time into this one.
Sorry about the crappy washed out cell phone pics.

Nice job he either used chemical or heat to weld-fuse the parts together either way is the correct way.Alot of people try to bond the pieces together with bondo which wont last very long.

I held the pieces in place with CA glue and then heat welded them together with a welding tip on my soldering iron. For fill material, I used the plastic I cut out of other spots. Very little bondo was used, some kitty hair to start with and a light bit of regular bondo to clean it up.
I've done a couple dashes and then plastic welding holds up best.

I use Rustoleum paint and it works great.

looks great! i would add more angle to it so the gauges would look at you instead of the back seat.

again, looks good

No more angle is needed, they point right at the driver.

It's funny the opinions, one poster says more angle, one says no angle.
Funny.

This was inspired by a friend of mine and his Marauder with the stock aux gauge panel.
I set the tubes to point directly at me when I'm driving.

well from the POV that we are looking at (just a pic) it looks like they point straight back, i honestly thought it needed more angle, but i guess not.
