I remember seeing a thread or at least a pic of this cool aftermarket cluster that fit right in the existing hole. With my gauges half working and no tach I'm interested but I could not find it by searching ... can someone point me in the right direction? It had a brushed steel look if memory serves me right.

I have the BTB panel and Dolphin gauges installed now. $$$ but love them. The gauges come set up for domestic engines so if you have a toyota engine, transmission or fuel level sender you will need to get a few other items like a new fuel level sender for your tank, 8 pulse generator and speedo cable extension. They have these items but you need to tell them what you have so that they can get you the right parts. Have not had any problems. If you have the cash... it is a nice way to go.

You can always make your own. This was easy to do you just have to have a disposable instrument panel.

Cool idea dudley and since my speedo works but other gauges are shot ... well plus I didn't realize how much that super gauge set was, I'm going to try this on the weekend.

Did you mount a tach somewhere?

The old reliable steering column.

That is plexy glass I used, traced the speedo, left that protective tape on then painted.

If you do it right you will have enough room for 2" gauges at the bottom.

It took me a couple of times to get it right.

Here's my cluster. I'm not sure if it's a Trail Candy or a Metal Tech or ?? It was in the truck when I bought it. Those are AutoMeter Phantom gauges. The speedo and tach are 3 3/8" and the other gauges are 2 1/16".
