Neat SW speedometer, never saw one set up like that before. Dig the Sears and Roebuck Temp gauge! That has to be 60's or maybe 70's!

Carriage head bolts would look good on the dash.

I think the front is too far forward. Slide it back to just behind the door post and see what it looks like. IIRC, in a Bug, the seat back is even with or just behind the door post. Legroom.

Old Iron's frame mount looks to be the best way to me. Less unsprung weight, less chance of bump steer, no telescoping shaft needed.
