    it's just a modified factory gauge bezel...the factory cluster has been removed, making the room available for the Autometers.

    the speedo and tach had to be swapped for location to make the speedo cable reach.

    the gauges are attached to the bezel itself.

    I like my dashlights dim at night, how do you make it so the dimmer works with the gauges like that.

    I have the gauges, 2 bezels, but need to get those little 'L' brackets - lost them all....
