I saw in another post that Your using the Torino dash. Got a plan for the instruments? My dad and I swapped the 4.6 into a '46 ford street rod, had to go with a GPS speedo. No provision for a cable on the trans, it all runs through the computer.

I'm going to be using the rally gauges in it from the 76 parts car. I'm pretty sure an aod speedo cable can be made to work with the 4r70w if not plan b is to modify the stock gauges and use a stepper motor to control the needles. From there an arduino microcontroller will be used as a controller

Yeah I've seen them before but the price is too steep for my liking. I can build something that does the same for about $20.

So as always less progress than expected, but I got the body back off and up on the rotisserie again so I can properly finish out the floor welding. I decided to actually stitch weld instead of simply spot welding. My thinking Is with the poly body mounts and stich welded seams the car should be much more rigid overall.
