Re: What do i need ???

You'll need the gauges and panel assembly that holds them. You could use the current wiring, but it will have to be reconfigured at the plug at the back of the gauge. You'll need all new oil pressure and water temp sensors. If you had a donor vehicle to geth the interrior wiring harness and the dash panel with gauges from that would be good. BTW, if you are sourcing these new, it is not cheap. It could be cheaper to go with aftermarket gauges.

Youíll need the clock and the wiring for the clock. Youíll also have to change your cluster lens, good time to get a new clear one. It needs to have the hole for the stem. I added a clock, when mine originally didnít have one.

Re: What do i need ???

When I had the cluster out, I also took the time and cleaned up all my other gauges. Oh, and you need a new black filler panel with the extra hole in it for the clock. Can’t think of what’s it’s called. Got everything from LMC, except the clock itself.
