I wanted to get rid of the factory gauge cluster and build my own custom Gauge cluster using all Autometer gauges. I first removed all useless wire from harness that were for the factory set up. Removed another pound or two or crazy wires.. Then made sure car still starts..lol! And it does..
After designing, then cutting and grinding i made this..

I'm assuming that's a mock up, because every single one of them shits is off centered.

What all gauges are you going to use?

Tach in center, water temp and oil pressure flanking tach top left, two boost gauges, bottom left voltmeter.. Top right an analog wideband a/f, then fuel pressure. Bottom right is fuel level.

I can't tell from the current pics, but are they going to be recessed? Like behind some clear plastic, as they would have been from the factory. If so that's going to be awesome.
