Here are some pics of the wiring mess I found when I removed the dash panel and some of my dash as I was starting the new look.

The gauges I chose were the Woodward Series by Vintage USA. The white piece of board I used for the dash is expanded foam sheet. Some call it PVC Sheet or Sintra Board. You can get it it varied thickness and it can worked like wood and plastic both
You can shape it with a router, drill it and tap it, heat it and bend it. It's great stuff.

On to the interior panels. I used a combination of PVC Sheet and waterproof board
I cut some of the designs and bought some from Hagan. I should have cut my own but the ones from Hagan had nice smooth cuts.

Lay out a big piece of card board or poster board the size of the panel you want or draw the panel on a piece of formica like I did and draw your designs. You use brake clean on a shop towel to erase it and start over. Once you have you designs figured out go ahead and cut them out of whatever material you are going to use and label them for the side they are going on. I got my ideas on how to make my panels here http://www.haganauto.com/category_s/179.htm.

Next I bought me a set of low back scat buckets that recline and slide with headrests. I put them in the car and moved them as far towards the doors as I could because I had my mind set on a center console. I wanted a place to store things and it looks nice with a console.
I did have to relocate my steering column to the left 2" but that was no big deal. Just cover and seal the hole in the floor with some heavy gauge metal sheet and recut the hole. I flattened the drop on the dash panel and made another drop 2" to the left.

I also did not want the battery to show so I bought an AGM battery and laid it on it's side inside a box I built behind the seats to take up some unused space and also to but my stereo equipment in.

I made a box for each speaker and put dyna mat in each one then I used some old door seal I had, cut and glued it to the outer edge of each box so when the front panel was set in place it would seal each speaker in its own housing.
