Got rid of the column shifter. Changed the tach to a better position and made the bracket permanent now. It was just pop riveted temporarily, welded together now that the stock shift arm is gone. I think everything is just about where I want it now, believe it or not I can still see the heater controls by just moving my head a little to right and they're still easily accessible.

Looks real good. I have discovered a tach, especially a large one is hard to mount in these Novas. The Rally dash with tach is going into mine, may not be impressive bt will be easy :D

Yeah, there just isn't a lot of options for a tach. Personally I kind of like the bad boy badass look of a tach hanging around.

Tach position brings back memories. I put a Sun tach there using an old bracket Dad had. Worked good but didn't have a clear view of the right turn signal blinker or the right side of the gauge cluster (not that it mattered anyway.)

I have a big Autometer tach on mine and mounted it in almost the same position. I moved the shift light to directly on the column for better visability. It's a little busy with the wideband gauge, tach, shift light and all working factory gauges, + oil pressure/water temp/alt in the radio hole, but you can see everything just fine! Gotta love the two big outside holes they leave you on the plain jane clusters.

Next job for the interior; grind off the stock shift mount, fill it and repaint the column. Maybe a new wheel, that ones pretty darn big.
