soon. Anyone have any pointers? I hope its not too difficult, and I dont &*ck up anything.

Should I go cobra style white face gauge?? My gauge curently is the 85mph lx cluster. Would I have to change anythng difficult to swap to white 140 or 160 or whatever?

I would also have to get the white face cluster for the heat/air things also! lol

ugh, more spending money...........

:headscratch:

Reason Im taking the gauge apart is a few things:

  1. checking the speedo cable , it has squeeked in the past
  2. looking for a replacemnt slosh sensor for the fuel gauge
  3. some of the lights behind the mph are burnt out, but it may be a fuze, checking that too
I figure since I have it off, might go white. Who thinks what? :scratchchin

I a place on ebay called caribbeancustomdesigns.com They had a cool set of gauges. You can also have them but symbols on them or a picture and im pretty sure you can get all different colors. i thought they were pretty sick. Dont know how they work though havent come up with the cash yet just a thought.

Thanks man, they look pretty cool, but Ill probably go with the cobra white gauges if I change. not sure yet..

Im not sure if they will look good or not on my car. Ive wanted to keep everything pretty stock looking, but the white cobra gauges can look good, maybe if I match them on the A/c switches- make those white too.. :headscratch:

IM also thinking about putting some gauges where the middle A/c vents are , but not sure which I should do, IF I do it.

fuel pressure? oil pressure? and maybe volts? :headscratch:

I love the way the middle vent gauges look. I would go with Oil Press and volts. Ive been told that it can through off the water temp gauge when you turn on the heat, but ive never seen it happen. But i personally really like the middle vent cage. Also fuel pressure should never be mounted in the thats horribly dangerous. Another cool cauge set up is the ones they have for the plastic cowl panel. Ive seen it on a couple cars it looked pretty crazy.

WEll, i think I ll just go with the same look, no white face gauges. Maybe Ill switch to the same thing I have but with the 140 mph gauge. I can probably pick one up at a junkyard maybe!

And thus, I probably wont do any other altercations to the car ie gauges in the vents .

Still brainstormin! :scratchchin

Im reading my google finds and it sounds like you are swapping the odometter readings too, when you swap gauge clusters???

you can swap just the face if you want, just make sure you mark the position of the needle before removing it and be careful not to bend anything. I swapped mine out and now i have to recalibrate it as well. While i had the gage panel removed i also installed blue led lights for a personlized touch. works great!
