    About have the bezel done. Need to get the wiper and headlights letters outlined in silver and wire it up. I think the white faced gauges will look awesome against the white dash.

    Used a couple LED's from Radio Shack for the turn signal lights.

    Not sure which color to use for the gauge lighting. The gauges come with red and green covers for the lights or can just go without any covers.

    Very nice! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I like the larger oil pressure gauge. Never seen one setup like that. Don't forget to post some pics when you get that setup in the dash and all put together.

    So Autometer sells covers to change the coloring of the lights????

    Can you also just get the little brackets to mount the gauges? It has been so long since mine were installed, I don't know where most of them are....Looks nice /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yea it looks awesome. I have the silver bezel with the
    Sport Comp guages. I didnt use my light covers, I thought that was sort of silly. Are all your guages electrical?

    All mechanical, I am going to incorporate some electric ones sometime.....

    By light covers, do you mean the bulb or bezel? I want to change the background lighting color.....

    Yes I meant the little red and green covers that go over the light bulbs. I have the mechanical temp and oil press, and the electronic speedometer.

    Thanks for all the compliments. The bezel is a stock used bezel that I cleaned up and painted.

    The oil gauge and speedo are mechanical, the rest are electric. Got most of the wiring done last night. Will be a while before I have it installed though, as I am sanding in preparation for paint.

    Looks great Yukon!

    The 67-72 dash's are perfect for adding aftermarket gauges!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Subfan, my gauges came with the different colored covers for the bulbs. I imagine they can be purchased separate. Not sure if you can get the brackets, but I would imagine you could.

    Dash looks really sharp. Are you going to include a high beam indicator?

    Can you give a ballpark figure on how much all those new gauges cost? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif!
