    Thanks Zigs

        I really like the quality of Autometer and Speed Hut gauges. Plus they’re both American made

          I always liked S/W but people are saying their not the old standard they used to be.

              Don't kill yourself on this thing I'm a ways out. I like to research and totally second guess myself before I make a decision.

                I went Autometer Elite. Super cool gauges that you can set to change colors depending on temp (for temp gauges), pressure (oil pressure), fuel level, and best of all RPM for your tach. Not cheap but awesome gauges.

                  Big fan of speedhut gauges. Nice and compact and easy to wire up. Plus you can set warning lights.

                      Speedhut, excellent product and you can build them online on their website! Just what you need while in isolation.

                        I went with AutoMeter Z-Series electrical gauges (3 3/8" tach, 2 1/16" for all others)

                          Looks like it is...but a non swinger which is par for the corse. I had to fabricate a dash for my swinger so I could fit some real gauges in it.

                          I put Speedhut gauges in my Duster last winter and absolutely love them.

                          Including:
                          GPS Speedometer - 100% accurate all the time. Integrated LEDs for HiBeam and Turn signals on face. LCD Display scrolls through 0-60 time/distance, 1/4 mile time and trap speed, Odometer, Elevation, Top Speed and numerous other things. In Canada so mine reads in Kmh.
                          Tach - Programmable shift lights on face, with output for external shift light
                          Fuel - I calibrated mine so that 'E' means 10 liters left in the tank. Wickedly accurate (with aftermarket sender) at any level in the tank. Easily the most accurate gas gauge of any vehicle I've ever owned.

                          20190427_225958.jpg

                          I bought the special crimper and wired my guage cluster up with Molex Connectors to connect it all to the stock dash wiring nice and neat.

                          VDO makes nice electrical gauges. Been using them for years. Never a problem.

                          The carrier / binnacle is from my 1970 RHD version of the Dart which was sold here in Australia as a Valiant Hardtop. I designed the instrument panel and had it laser cut and then I modified the carrier to suit.
