Spent some time tinkering with dash designs. I’m going for a modern treatment but without detracting too much from the period design.
Here are a few digital mockups I did to get a sense of how it may turn out:
I ran these ideas by a few friends and family and the consensus was the first option with the three small gauges on top of the double DIN opening. The thinking was “performance and engine monitoring first”, so that’s what we’re rolling with – the critical gauges (oil temp, water temp, volts) above the double DIN.
The DIN until will feature a touchscreen, bluetooth, GPS, the audio features you’d expect, rear camera support and GPS inputs for the navigation software. It’s Android based so the ODB2 apps for car maintenance and enhanced performance monitoring can run there as well. The ashtray will be used as a hidden USB media and charging port.
