    here is the mechanical gauge set I installed in the bj 62....it is from wal-mart and was only $50.00 incl tax and included all necessary adapters and such for the install . one of the best uprades for critical info you can do imop . They are back lit and you can choose your color .

    equus i believe. I bought the black ones. Thought the white was too much for the old 60. Those look really good though. Maybe i should have got those. Oh well. Nice mount did you fab it yourself? I like the angle they sit at.

    Nothing beats a good system monitoring setup.

    Cheers

    yes i fabbed up a plate for the top that angles the gauges up and rotates them towards you so you just have to roll your eyes to the right and it is easily readable especially at night because of the white face.

    her is a side view...I made a cover ( .025 ) and attached ( bonded ) it to the side of the bezel face that came with the gauges in order to hide all the plumbing and wires .
