I finally got the cluster i shoed you all installed scince my car finally came in. I t works great [Image: smile.gif] but the back lighting idea leaves a little to be desired but i know what i did wrong and am going to fix it. Here is a picture of it installed and a few others of my baby.

What Pete said. [Image: biggrin.gif] I especially like the colors you used for the cluster labels.

Nice job!

Looks real nice.

Now that you have your Bird over there, take it to some landmark areas and get some pictures of them with the car in front of them.
I would love to see a TurboCoupe parked in front of the Tower Bridge or Windsor Castle.

i just redid my entire cluster as well. i used autometer gauges for for everything except the tach and the speedometer. it came out really nice. i had to cut out circles from the face, cut holes in the white plastic backing, and remove the laminated copper thing in the back to get everything to fit. i used regular wire to reconnect everyhing. it was alot of work but i think it was worth it. unfortunately, i don't have any pictures

Thats what i plan to do. As far as tower bridge hell no i dont trust teh dumb brits to drive around my car here much less in main london. I am going to Warwrick Castle i a couple weeks i will do it there and i plan to try to get a good shot of stonehenge.
I made my own small guage faces also i just dont have good access to a good printer i can experiment with to get it right. I am putting aftermarket guages in placen of the EQ and a A Pillar Mount.
