AutoMeter Gauge Retrofit


Recommended Posts

Hey Gang-

This is a follow up to my previous post on gauge upgrades.  

When considering the change I wanted to maintain as much of the stock aesthetic as possible, so looking at all the options I decided to go the route of retrofitting a set of Auto Meter Cobalt gauges into the original housings.  With the intent of minimal modifications to stock parts it took a bit of trial and error and some backyard engineering but IMHO the results look great.  

I'll post pics of them installed soon.

If folks are interested I can put a "how to" post up a bit later.

SWEET............I installed a set of Cobalts gauges , and it looks like they corrected something that REALLY BUGS me..... On mine the Oil/Water/Volts verbiage is in the middle so that the needle covers the words when working. It look like the re- positioned the words to the bottom so you can now see them..........I even thought about writing them about this, maybe others actually did ::thumb::

 

I like the blue light so much that I wired them to be always on :D

They do look very good. I would also encourage the tutorial so others can benefit from your time and dedication to making it look right. Good Job!
