Re: Lets see your gauges setups

Wish the pic was better SIR. I have a set of gauges in my OT VW Karmann Ghia from Haneline. They have nice stuff.

the only time you get a bad GPS signal is in long tunnels or otherwise underground. not sure how this accesses the satellites but a regular GPS uses about 12 of them at one time and if one is blocked by trees or mountains, the accuracy goes down a bit until it gets full visibility again to the sky.

these GPS speedos must have some sort of antenna that has to be mounted outside.

Here is the link to the insert that looks like the one I purchased. You tell them what brand and style of gauges you are using and they machine to fit.

http://www.boeseengineering.com/Shop...lphin-gauges-1

I really cannot remember the exact thickness but it was near .25 inch. Each of the gauge holes was counter bored (?) about .125 so that the gauges set down into the insert. If making your own, I do not think the thickness is critical as long as it is thick enough to prevent flex, gauges do not have to be recessed either. Small gauges are 2 1/16 diameter, large 3 3/8 inches. I ordered mine with the brushed finish.

Show us what you end up with when you finish.

Re: Lets see your gauges setups

Sneaky sneaky. That looks cool but it would drive me crazy trying to look through one set of numbers to see the other gauges. Pretty incognito if you just glance quickly

You know, I'm not a 'mod-a-holic' but I do like to change things up a little. Your original guage cluster really looks great! I wonder if it could be changed so that the indicators would be actual numbers instead of 'tick-marks' and if the back lighting could be changed to red.....THEN, I'd be sold on it for my truck. I've got an autometer setup thinking that it was what I wanted but I'm not very happy with the look. Now I'm looking for something different!....again!

Re: Lets see your gauges setups

Astronaut, really like that clean look. What all is involved in re-numbering/recalibrating the speedo?

All I had to do was send payment, a lens, and a block off plate to Jason at Greenback Decal. He uses a stock block off plate for the face of the tach, and uses his own internals and overlay for the graphics. I wetsanded and buffed the lettering off a reproduction lens and he screen printed new numbers on the lens. He can do 6,7,8k tachs as well if you don't want or need a 10k tach.

The speedometer may end up being driven by an Abbot cable-x box or Dakota Digital's newer version. That will take car of the speedometer calibration. Jason handles the tach calibration.
