    Does any one know where i can get white gauge faces for the dash? how much they cost, or do you know of a place that can make them.

    i want some too, but I do not think they make them. They would lose money becuase not enough people would want them to cover the costs and bring in a profit. At least thats my guess, if anyone can find them, that would be sweet.

    you can always install those autogage phantom series, a bit expensive though. i even like those new glowing ones that i saw in the summit catalog. and then custom install them.

    Heck, they are available right from good old GM. Found them in the GM Performance Parts Catalog.........even have some with nice orange BOWTIES in the middle. Not factory replacement, but sweet nonetheless.

    I intsalled them in a buddies new truck, you had to pull the needles off the one I did, and they did not go back on easily. His gauges havent been "on" the since. His fuel is a little off, and his speedo is a little hinky. We have gone back o number of time to try to remedy the problem, but evey time it just goes from on problem to the next. I also know that a few other freinds hav had the same problem. Anyway, HAVE A NICE DAY!!!
