    Hey Guys and Gals,

    I was cruising the ole interweb for a digital dash solution for my 68 Cuda's Rallye dash and found this.

    Pretty cool option if it appears reasonably stock looking as the B and E -body clusters do.
    According to my findings, Dakota Digital will custom build a digital, analogue appearing gauge cluster for my rallye dash. I emailed the company and received a response from Josh Kobernuzs who provided me with the info.

    I am seriously considering this upgrade and thought I would share the info on here. Who knows, with enough of a response maybe they will consider it as a stock item and therefore reduce the pricing.

    I mentioned that I was a member here and would post his response.

    Al,

    Unfortunately we will not be offering a direct-replacement instrument kit for your vehicle at this time. However, we do offer a series of universal instrument packages which you may choose to mount on your own, or have us build a one-off custom system into a gauge cluster which you’d provide.

    If you send in your original bezel/gauge housing (or one out of a donor vehicle) we can build a custom set of gauges directly into those original parts.
    Any reconditioning (paint, chrome, etc.) should done before sending the housing in to us.

    A typical VFD3 (full digital) 6-gauge custom build starts at $1,150, while a VHX (Analog) 6-gauge variation will begin at $1,400. A 50% deposit is required upon receipt of the bezel(s), and the remaining balance will be due upon completion. Lead times will vary based upon the complexity of the project and the current project volume.

    Here is a link to the Customs page on our website, showing some examples and specifications:

    Here is a link to the Universal instrument systems and individual gauges on our website, if you’d rather customize your dash to accommodate an existing product:
