I just received the cast dash and mount plate kit today but there wasn't any installation instructions with it. Does anyone know where I can get instructions for this kit or can assist me with this. I looked online nothing on you tube and nothing in the HD softail manual. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.

Faster project moving right along. Received the dash, speedometer, ignition switch dash mount plate kit and hardware. This is a test fit of the base mount plate, speedometer and ignition switch. Without installation instructions thought I would do my best to figure out the basic stuff. So did a test fit of the components unfortunately the dash did not fit so I have to return it to J&P cycles

Right tank set to where it needs to be for final assembly. Need to Fab the mount brackets and then onto fuel lines and wiring.

Got the final fabrication of the tank mounts finished and installed. Needs some touch up paint, then final tank assembly, ignition and light wiring, then fuel lines.

Got the mock up and fabrication completed. I mounted the tanks in place Today. I think this is going to look great when finished.
