I also just figured out how to upload a picture.
looks awesome very nice job /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
That cluster is bad azz /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
Looks killer.. would you mind posting the details on the bezel, where you got it?? and the gauge part numbers??
My cousion made it using auto-cad and then ran the program on the Hass. I am vary happy with the way it turned out.
is this the same one you were asking opinions on last week?if it was did you fab it yourself or have it made.looks very high quality.nicccce
Robin was asking on opions...
I used auto-meter "ULTRA_LITE"
I used the stock plastic peice and just took all the extra plastic material away with a dremel.
My cousion has a machine shop and made the peice that holds the gauges. he saved the program and I think it could be duplicated for fairly cheap. palcement and size of the holes were the easy part.
That is outstanding! What did the whole setup cost you in parts?
Looks great! I had a question about the speedo. It appears to be electronic rather than mechanical. How will it be connected? Thx. JT
The gauges set me back about $550 /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
the aluminum face plate just cost me time.
The electric spedo has a waterproof sending units that fits in the stock location on the transfer cast. the two connect with a piece of 12 gauge wire.
Good job man.
See guys, I'm not the only one who likes a clock on the dash...
BTW: What do your LED's light up for?
On the electric speedo, does on sending unit fit all driveline ratios? Is it infinitely tunable? How do you calibrate it for your application?
That look's alot like my dash. I went with Auto meter Phantom Guages. Nice Job You can see pic's of my dash clicky below. Im going to get rid of the clock and go with a tranny temp guage.Later <font color="red">1 FN HI K5 </font color>
Don't you need a tranny crack gauge more, Brad?
BTW: I looked at your crack (it's butt ugly)... /forums/images/icons/blush.gif I've never heard of a 350 cracking here or that this is a weak spot. Was there any loose bolts on the mount or transfer case that would have stressed the case here, or did something internally break that caused the case to crack?
I dont think anything internally broke. I hope, anyway the guy that rebuilt my tranny say's he is 99.9% sure that the tranny cracked is because i didn't have the "L" bracket installed on my transfer case to the frame. I guess they put it there for a reason. <font color="red"> 1 FN HI K5</font color>
So the transfer case was hanging off the transmission mount only?
Yep /forums/images/icons/frown.gif <font color="red"> 1 FN HI K5 </font color>
The t-case cross member was there...just not the direct frame to t-case mount.
