Gauge Pictures Please!

Postby Brad.Miller » 21 Jun 2015 06:58

So I am wanting to go with some aftermarket gauges in the stock cluster / dash. I have looked at pictures here and there of some options just hoping to get some ideas.

Please throw up any gauge layout you guys have gone with.

Also any thoughts on a GPS speedometer??

Thx
Brad

Early or late dash?

This is an old and dirty looking picture but I think you get the idea. The gauge mounted to the center column is no in my center console but I am still running the stock fuel gauge. These are http://www.speedhut.com/ gauges. Pretty great options on their site. Im using the GPS speed-o

Look at the "Redalious" build by Missan. He did a great job.

That's the late SSS instrument panel. None were made in LHD. The one pictures was modified with great skill.

Always loved this treatment of the early dash. Nice to add texture to the heater, etc. to blend it all in, sorry if I am hijacking this thread, but at least i didn't post my wood dash! ;)
