    Yeah, I gotta wait for mini me to wake up from his nap though. Not sure if he wants a coating on it or go with a carnauba

    Now that is improvement. Great work.

    What did you/are you coating with?

    finally getting a gauge setup going. Picked up a cheaper Samsung 7" tablet to use the torque pro app with....absolutely awesome. Just using a window mount for now. Eventually will be mounted in the custom center console I`m going to build. Still playing with gauge styles and layout, but I`m pretty happy with it

    The paint came out great, House! I`m sure that was/is a huge job...but you`ll be glad you did it.

    Thanks for the update, I had kind of forgot about this thread. Fun seeing all the work you`re doing to the truck.

    BTW that`s pretty darn smart using a tablet to run those gauges, are you going to make it where you can pop it out of the dash to charge or build that in as well?

    The tablet is working awesome. Beats the heck out of spending several hundred dollars for one of the other monitors. That torque app with the extended Powerstroke pids will monitor anything the truck`s computer can monitor. The only 2 missing are fuel pressure and exhaust gas temps. At some point I will probably add regular gauges for those. The truck already has an egt gauge in it, but the gauge doesn`t work. At least it`s already set up for one though.

    My idea is to build a console that goes from between the seats where it will contain a subwoofer enclosure and then swoop down and extend to meet up with the dash. Up where it meets the dash is where there will be a "cavity " for lack of a better term where the tablet will set in flush with the console and have the charging cord plugged in yet hidden. Also will incorporate the USB plugs for the head unit in the console along with storage including secure storage for a firearm since I`ll be getting my conceal carry license soon (there`s a lot of places in the wonderful state of Illinois where you have to leave it in the vehicle)

    None of that may make any sense, but I`ve got the vision perfect in my head lol. Big ideas, gonna be a good winter project probably

    I love that gauge set up, I wonder if they have something like that for my tundra. I tow every weekend and I have no tranny temp gauge and it kills me not knowing how hot its getting. also been eye balling few new HUD display systems that are out there that are universal, 2 best ones I have seen are both still in development/prototype stage.

    Got some new shoes for the beast. My tires were bald as hell, so I figured now would be the time to do wheels too. Couldn`t be happier with the way they look.
