New gauge cluster?

Hey guys,
Im looking for an after market gauge cluster ive seen a really nice lit up blue one.



I cant find it online for sale or any other aftermarket gauge set im ok with the one i got but I wouldnt mind sonmething like this or any other aftermarket gauges you guys know of. any ideas?

also im thinking about deleting my clock in my dash and replacing it with a ect and a/f ratio gauge? is it safe to take out the clock and cut holes where it should be or will i mess up the wiring for the other lights?

Re: New gauge cluster?

those are EL gauges.... search, there are quite a few threads about them and how to "retro-fit" you dash to accomodate it.
Not as fancy or bright, but there are tutorials found in the DIY section about how to add extra bright LED's (your color choice) and/or even 'clearing' the filter off the back of the speedo/tach gauge to make the lights even that much more intense.

The "clock area" you speak of is just a small square circuit board that can be removed. You wont hurt anything to cut into it, just stay in the upper quadrant.. you will see what I mean when you get into it.
