    The first pic has nothing to do with the new gauges, but look closely in between the gas gauge and the vent. That yellow thing is a dang spider w/web on my steering wheel. I think thats a sign my Blazer has been under construction too long.
    And the second pic is of the new gauges...I like the way it turned out.

    Those white gauges look pretty sweet... you'll love the custom setup!

    Yea, I've driven it once or twice since the gauges have been there. I love it. So much easier to see and more accurate. I even put the green things over the bulbs, so they have an indiglo color at night. Matches my VDO tach perfectly.

    Their Autogage brand ones I got from Summit. I don't know the model numbers. The triple gauge set was only $70 which I thought was pretty alright.

    i really like that. I was thinking of pulling my dash and doing something in alum. You used the summit gauges? A good deal? Cant afford a 400 buck set of gauges, but I want something soon!!!

    Yea Laketex, if I was going to be doing some offroad racing, or I had 10k in my motor I might have got some super nice, super expensive gauges...but I don't need them. Like I said before, Autogage is a good brand and $70 for all 3 I thought was a heck of a deal. And the VDO tach was around $60 I think...I've had the tach there for a while. It was really pretty easy to put them in the dash...just a cut here and cut there and I was done. Used the Dremel tool on 99% of it.
