Dash Cluster

So I'm thinking of doing something to my speedo/cluster/gauges...i have seen the digital units (not my thing)....like the old school...saying that what have people here done...I've seen the classic dash units...some say they are not that well built...or should one just do a gauge billit within the cluster using original components

I did my own

First I cut up the old dash


Then I filled and sanded


Then added gauges. The bezels are painted to match the car.

Just a side note they will cut your gauge holes and what ever else you need custom done as well. Not sure of those charges but I am very happy I spent the money on it. I am not a big fan of all the plastic replacements out there.
