i ordered the gauges feels like probably a year ago (speedometer, water, oil, volts, and fuel) and have had my dash cluster out for about as long but finally got a weekend to putting it together and cutting into a piece of aluminum it was a lot easier than i though i know it could look better but i'm very happy with it. but this thread is worthless about pics right?


when i get the money i'm going to buy a matching tach to put next to the speedometer thats why the gap is there



and sorry for the crappy camera phone pictures

I got all of my gauges from iequus.com. They were the best price I could find at the time. The guage on the far right is a air/fuel ratio gauge. I thought it would be neat at the time but I haven't hooked it up yet.

It has been a while since I did my gauges but I believe the fuel gauge wire is black. It comes straight from the tank. I had to get a new speedo cable but I can't remember if it was because of the gauge or that I needed a new one anyway.

fuel gauge wire

the fuel guage wire on my 68 was brown and come from the top of the sending unit and ran down the same wire loom as the tail lights. I bought my speedometer cable from O'Reillys
