    I recently posted pictures of after market gauges in the factory gauge housing. I got a lot of emails on this
    so I'll make up extra sets of the plates. The plates support two 4" gauges and a standard 2" ( 2 1/16" ).
    So far I've only found Speedhut to make a 4" cluster gauge. Autometer and the others I've seen are 5"
    which is too large for the factory opening. The only parts you need are 3 plates , 8 screws and 8 small spacers. Speedhut lets you choose a number of color and bezel options as well as custom logos on the face. I found, as I've gotten older, so have my eyes ( who'd have thought ). Their site allows you to preview the day and night colors of the gauges so you can select what works best for you eyes.
    This color worked best for me...I can read them at night! yeah!

    How do the gauges mount?
    What/were "spacers"?

    The spacers are needed because some of the screw mounts in the factory cluster are offset. Speedhut guages are very swallow and use a thread on ring. The shallow depth is nice and since the speedo is GPS driven there's no cable to manipulate. I wanted to keep the factory turn indicators although the gauges have small LEDs built in for both the high beam and turns.

    I'll know by mid week and post up. Looking at 35.00 for it all. It could be shipped in a small USPS priority flat rate box

    To much work for me, I barely can keep it rolling :cheers:
    But if you want to remove the speedo cable and have enough room I made this picture yesterday (tomorrow getting a road check :skull:)
    It took me some time to get to the one and only way: cut the tie rip under chassis to get a lot of room:

    Another WOW, Dave. Great idea! Perfect color choice, too, IMHO :D

    I'll certainly take a set.

    You can tell I've only owned Land Cruisers my whole life. All other cars look alike

    Yeah, the center plate fits the 2 1/16 clock and the 2 1/16 fuel pressure gauge I have here.
