    Yes 2 inch. There's a guy on the Studebaker forum that makes decals for the gauge markings. I'm going to paint the faces and put the decals on and it should look stock if you don't look to close.

    Cool. How are you going to view the speedometer for accuracy? all the others look viewable .

    I'm going to have to drive at a know speed and cal it from there. It's not going to be totally accurate at all speeds but I think it will be close enough. The other gauges I will make note of the range they need to be in, so not great detail there either.

    Still waiting to finish my dash decals. I have made some progress on other things. I got the radiator hoses figured out with the steam vent. Also got the intake tube and air filter fitted. Last, the trans cooler mounted and lines made. Getting closer to an engine start up.

    Got my gauge panel back together. Also did some work on the dash. If you look at a stock stude dash they have a couple bolt on panels that run across the front of it. I welded in those areas so it's smooth across the front. Also filled in the radio area and going to use that for the AC controls and use one of those hidden media players instead. I plan on making a ribbed aluminum speaker grill for the center like the old chrome ones.

    Still inching my way toward starting the engine I decided to find a place for a battery. I dragged out the brake that I made, it bolts to my steel workbench. I bent up some stainless and made a cover. I ordered some welding cable to make up the leads.

    I scored these beautiful seats on craigslist for a hundred bucks! They are out of a 2019 VW Golf with 1k miles. They have manual lumbar and height adjust, I just had to figure out the recline wiring. Working on mounting them today.

    VW makes great seats. The two I had in my '27 were from an '86 GTI, with electrics adapted from two '92 Ford Tempos.

    I wasn't looking for VW seats but I wanted something fairly new and tan. I have always liked VW seats though so I was very excited to find these.

    Nice work on the battery box and nice score on the seats! That is a killer deal!
