Hi Rod,

Only opinions so far, I'll likely do the same on our '66 when the dash comes out (next big project is the windshield panel replacement).

It sounds like a good idea to use the narrow vs. wide as you've mentioned.  I'm pretty sure you want 3 CP bulbs at least for the panel, you could go 4 or 5 maybe for the dash bulbs, dimming them down far enough shouldn't be an issue.  Brightness of the indicators is a matter of taste, not sure how bright I'd want those.  Maybe 2 CP, but check to see what was stock.

The ones I'd really go brighter on are the TEMP-PRESS and GEN-FAN bulbs with narrow pattern, if those light up you want to see them ASAP.
