    Default Aftermarket Gauges and Stainless Dash Panel

    Here is what it will look like, I had to remove an excessive amount of the dash for the gauges to fit right then drill some holes for the indicator lights. I don't really like the fact that it didn't fit cleaner, there are open gaps on both sides that i'm going to have to do something with. Looks good, considering, just wish i had found and read the fine print before ordering, oh and by the way, the plugs don't match up so you will need to cut the plugs and add new connectors:

    I have been studying that gauge set from scout parts pretty seriously too lately. It looks really sharp, does the dash pad interfere at all and let me know what you are going to do about the sides... I am still working on the underside...so I am a few weeks away from that..so any help would be appreciated.

    That does look good, but personally, I like the dashpanel you can get from IHONLYNORTH as they supply an endcap to fill in the void and it looks cleaner.

    I plan to take some stainless and probably hot glue it to the sides to fill the void. As for the dash pad if fits pretty snug, the gauges are really bright and all in all i'm satisfied with it. I wonder where mertaw found this one, looks really nice! http://binderbulletin.org/album.php?...&pictureid=129
