    clutch47, where did you end up placing your tach?

    I ended up using an old SunTach (from my friend's '72 Buick Apollo) and mounting it top left (driver side) corner of my dash pad. I didn't want to mount it in such a conspicuous place, but there was a chunk of the dash cover missing; so I covered it up. It doesn't look too cheesy from the outside though. And my A-pillar is cracked in the same spot; I think my Dad did that when he was pushing the car during one of the break-downs.

    It didn't happen as of 0725 this morning....
    I'm still undecided. On the column works but isn't gonna work for me. Too cluttered.
    I thought about in front of my inspection sticker on the left side of my dash.
    But the damn dash is too nice to destroy...the dash is in great shape except for the speaker grille sooo…..
    I'm debating making a plate to cover the broken hole mess and mounting it to that.
    Stainless...?..
    We'll see. I've got 4 whole days off, so I'm thinking it will happen shortly.
    I'll take pix for sure.

    If you don't care about the clock, put it there. Not exactly all that visible though. Pillar gauges are easier to see. Mine is on the column, but it blocks part of the speedo. Lincoln gauges are different though.

    Car does look good up there. I really like two doors me self. I'd trade my minty '88 TC for a similarly minty '87 Ford Two Door.
