Here's a sneak peak of the gauge cluster for the 67-68.

Thanks, if you don't have air the right side it will have the A/C vent deleted. I'll go from spending an hour and half to build a factory cluster to probably 15 minutes with our new one.

I'll start off with the carbon fiber and sterling silver like we do for the other bezels we make. If there's enough demand for the woodgrain, then we'll make it.

Looks good. New gauges are my next move. So I will be patiently waiting for the unveiling.

My dad got a 68 mustang coupe (acapulco blue with 2 white racing stripes on the hood) when I was 3. 22 years later I have been rebuilding it from the ground up as a restomod. Getting there.

Are you planning a matching A/C vent for the driver's side?

If we we're to do that then the you would need a separate control some where else. We will probably make a matching piece that will cover your factory heater/ A/C control.

Looks Good! Will I be able to use my old stock AC vents or are you making new ones too fit the vent holes?

For the drivers side you will use the factory piece, but we will furnish the right side.
